We were fortunate to know Linda through our association in a musical group- the MacDowell Colony League. She was an absolutely delightful person and a real asset to our group. We express our deepest sympathy to the family. Sincerely, Rick and Maggie Jones

I don't know how I could have been so fortunate as to have known Linda. She was kind, bright, and understanding....and always the optimist. So talented , so confident, and always a lady. Unselfish, and very sweet. She is, and always will be, a very special person to me. My sincere condolences to her children and grandchildren, her sisters and brother, and her loving husband.
