Ron and I have known Linda for over fifty years and she has always been a joy to be around. Smart, organized, caring and with a smile that lights up a room! G.j, Keith and Brian we are so sorry for your loss. Life does not always let us keep in close touch, but it did not matter with Linda, when we got together it was like we had never been apart. Her warmth was always the same. A beautiful lady, always! She will be missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her.....especially Ron and I.....now her light will shine in Heaven!

GJ, Keith, Brian - my deepest condolences to you, your families, your aunt & uncle. It has been at least 50 years since I met your mother at - wait for it - a bowling alley on Route 9 in Natick. We became friends immediately (because she was easy to befriend). Then, she invited me to "sub" in her Bridge group in which I was fortunate enough to eventually become a "regular". Linda was the kindest, loving, most generous person I have ever known. When your grandparents would baby sit, they let us (the Bridge Ladies) use their home in Dennis for the weekend. Linda kept our group together through lunches, dinners, shopping. We kept contact with each other & met for lunch several times a year. We traveled to Maine to play Bridge. Linda visited me in Florida & guess what? She subbed in my Bridge group. Through all her emotional pain, disappointments, health issues & heartache, Linda never lost her sense of humor. Her beautiful smile & infectious laugh will stay with me forever. When she insisted I take the Italy trip with our Bridge group, I hesitated. I'm so glad that she & my family talked me into it. That is a memory I will eternally cherish especially now that she, Millie Choinski & Tom Conlon are no longer with us. RIP my beautiful friend. You are at peace. I shall miss you.

Dear Family,
I was the co-worker with Linda Bradley at the Natick Visiting Nurse Association. We were collaborators for many of our patients. Linda was an extraordinary nurse to all that she served. We exchanged many laughs and many stories, and of course recipes and jokes. Linda will be missed. I know that she went down to the Cape initially to care for her parents and we missed her then. May her memories sustain you in the months and years to come.

The dinners, the trips, the laughter, so many wonderful memories. Linda gave me a plaque which says “Cousin to cousin we’ll always be special friends from the same tree “. Miss you Linnie.

I have fond memories of Aunt Linda at the house in Natick...summer gatherings with lots of food, fireworks, and time in the pool. (Plus, her famous fruitcakes at Christmas, which my mom loved!) She was a very sweet woman with a lovely infectious laugh! Sending lots of love and comforting thoughts to all who knew and loved her. xoxoxox

What a beautiful picture of Linda and this is how we will always remember her....cooking, laughing and having fun.....so many wonderful St. Patrick’s Day dinners and other get togethers. I loved her like a sister and we are heartbroken that she is gone but thankful she is not suffering any more and is at peace. Love you Linda!
