Happy Mother's Day Linda. Thinking about you today.

It's been a month now since you passed away and I still can't believe that your gone. There are a thousand things I would like to say to you, but what is most important is I love you and thank you for being my best friend and wonderful mother. I know you're still with us and forever will be. I love you and will cherish the time I had with you. I love you mommy!
April 02, 2013
To my dear class mate, RIP. This is to soon, to young and to sad to here! My prayers go out to your family and friends.
I cant express how sad I am that Linda has passed. I grew up on the same street as Danny & Christine and spent many nights at their dinner table or watching planes, trains and automobiles. Her laugh was so sweet and a sound I will forever remember. My prayers are with Dan, Danny and Christine.
You will be missed Linda. I will always remember you with your big smile and how proudly you spoke about your children. My heart aches for your family.
Missing you. Knitting a prayer shawl with your HomeSpun Yarn and wearing your scarf every day. Pretty soon the shawl will be finished and given to someone needing comfort. And soon, also, the weather will be too warm for your scarf so I will fold it and put it away till the seasons change and the time comes to be warmed by it once more.
I know your spirit lives on.
Loving you and my brother and my niece and my nephew.
Missed you much today. Saw your kids, went to your service. Thought about your smile, our exchange of cat stories, your sewing for "trade" with me and the pleasure of working with you. RIP
My friend and nursing preceptor. I pray for your family and i though its been a few years since we last spoke, there is an great empty space in my heart where the sound of your laughter still rings.
What precious memories I have of Linda!
Growing up in Brentwood, NH. We were all close thanks to a very little town! I especially remember my brother Butch and I going to Linda's every Thursday after school to watch "Dark Shadows"!! We'd be afraid and then crack up laughing! I also remember riding bikes with Linda and Lisa one day and the bearings were gone in the bike and the handle bars were very wobbly going down the hill and the wobbling got worse and then crash! I met the asphalt! I still have a scar on my right elbow to remember that day!! Linda, your family was so nice to me and I always felt welcome in your company!! I will always REMEMBER your giggles and I look forward to meeting up with you in heaven!! hugs, Pauline (Maynard) Lewis.
To Linda's family, I'm so shocked and saddened to hear about Linda. Such a wonderful person. We had so much much growing up in Brentwood. My thoughts and prayers go out to you.
Such a good pal in high school and bridesmade in my 1974 wedding...see you again one day Linda!
To my dear class mate, RIP. This is to soon, to young and to sad to here! My prayers go out to your family and friends.
Linda, I cannot begin to tell you how fondly I continue to think of you...In fact, only recently I thought back to the most adorable family video I had ever viewed - you and Dan doing your best to get the "little ones" on camera in just the right way.
Linda, your positive energy will never leave this earth...your love will continue to thrive in the hearts of your family...your kind smile will continue to warm delightful memories. Anyone who had the good fortune to have known you is forever blessed.
Danny, Dan and Christine,
My heart goes out to you after hearing of this tragic news. Linda was an awesome woman with so much love to give. My memories of time spent with your family are memories I'll always cherish. I even remember her teaching me how to make my first fresh basil pesto! Her smile lit up a room and she clearly taught her family how to enjoy life. I know she is now one of God's angels and will forever be smiling down on her loved ones. Again, I'm so sorry for your loss and you are in my prayers.
So very sad to see, my thoughts and prayers to the entire family.
Incredible...I'm so sorry for your grief. I went to school with her sister Lisa back in Brentwood. I remember her dogs Hubert and Humphrey and her Dad was chief of police I believe. She was taken too soon. My condolenses to her entire family. - Van & Melanie (Clark) Aschenbrenner
Sorry to hear of this...I haven't seen her since school days in Exeter...none the less....God..please help those who are alive and remain to carry on to this end...that we be the recipients of Your wonderful promise that those who believe in, trust and love Your appearing.....will see our loved ones again...thank-you God in Jesus name...Amen
My deepest sympathy to the Daneau family. Linda had a smile for anyone she came in contact with. She was an open book and shared her life. A true angel here on earth.
You touch so many lives with your beautiful smile and your giggling laugh but most of all your compassion and kindness.You will always be in our hearts and we were all blessed to have you in our lives even though you left us to soon. I know you are in heaven watching over us and your beautiful family. If you can say a few extra prayers for the Red Sox this year they may need your help! Be at peace my friend.
Oh Linda, I don't know where else to go for some comfort except to read what everyone has said about you on this site. I can hear your voice also, whenever I walked into work, it was like a party, a ray of sunshine! There you were making me feel like a superhero for just showing up for work! The joy that radiated out from you was infectious. I really didn't like the days you were on vaca, they were just a little darker. Nothing against anyone else who worked with us, they understand also what I mean! How to put into words what you meant to us? What you meant to me and Leah? How could months go by without us talking? And yet, I always felt that you were always gonna be there and I could call you whenever and it would be like we were never apart. Life marches on so fast sometimes, I wonder how we don't just spin off this planet? Why couldn't I just pick up the phone? I have been thinking of you a lot since before Thanksgiving. (I hope they put sugar in their Sweet Potato Pie up where you are!) I know there are people that have known you longer, spent more years with you than we did, but there was never one minute spent with you that I didn't enjoy. How many people can say that? You were the kind of person one WANTS to be around, because of your sparking personality. Because of your love of life. You taught me to knit. You taught me so many things. You taught my child things, as only another mother could. I know our friendship transcends this earth and your sign you promised me will appear. I know you know we loved you. Our hearts will always have a little crack in them from losing you too soon. I can't say good-bye my friend. How about, until we meet again? That is the best I can do. I can't believe you are gone.
I will miss you so, so, so much Miss Linda. You were a great person, you were like a second mother to me.
Dear Danny and Christine, today I was honored to be present at your beautiful service for your Mom. You don't know me but after working with Linda for almost 9 years, I feel like I know you very well. I was a new nurse in 2004 and your Mom was the kindest and most supportive nurse mentor I could have asked for. She brought so much comfort to patients, family members and fellow nurses. Looking at the room overflowing with saddened faces at her loss, it is easy to see the impact she made on the lives of so many.
We went our separate ways after a couple of years, but stayed friends. Please take comfort in knowing your Mom was like no other. The beautiful picture you have chosen to put here on her guest book page is how I see your Mom in my mind.
The huge smile, the over the top laugh, and a big hug she had for everybody.
Talk to her everyday as she is right over your shoulder watching and protecting. She is alive in the hearts of all who knew and loved her. I agree that she had gotten her angel wings long before she went to heaven.
I will honor your Mom by being the best friend I can be and the best nurse mentor I can be, like she was for me.
Linda was an amazing human being. She will never be forgotten.
Condolences, prayers & healing thoughts to the Daneau and extended family. May you find peace, comfort and solace in your loving memories of Linda. May she rest in peace, cradled in the arms of the Angels.....
It was a pleasure working with Linda. She was the sunshine in every day. My prayers with the family at this sad time.
My dear friend. You are so loved and will be missed while I am still on this earth. My deepest, deepest condolences to Dan, Danny, Laura, Christine and Levi. Linda is a beautiful shining light and now she shines even brighter. BTW, this guest book comes down on my birthday...coincidence? Nah, not with Linda running things....
My deepest sympathies to the Daneau family for the loss of Linda, who I remember as a kindred New-Englander with a remarkable talent for beautifully photographing its landscape. My prayers are with you.
I remember the night I dropped my keys down the elevator shaft while walking my Dog...wearing only my nightshirt! Locked out, I knew Tyler was at your house with Kristyn, Bea, Dan and Steve... so Ashlee brought me over there. You greeted me with a big hug and told me to come in and stay for a while. I was only wearing my nightshirt, but you said not to worry because we are family... So, Ashlee, Zeus and I came and hung out by the pool with all of you, laughing and talking.
Your death has saddened me deeply. You will be missed so much and I wonder....did you know how very much you are loved?
My prayers to the Daneau family and I hope you will find strength in faith and friends. Her spirit was a blessing to us all. May His peace be with you.
Thank you Linda for making a difference in this world and our lives. Your smile will live forever in our hearts. Barb Meehan
You made my day just being around you. You and yours are in our hearts, thoughts and prayers. Godspeed,Linda. Mary Dryden and Jessi(Dryden)Boisvert.
My deepest condolences to Linda's family. I was privileged to have met Linda in the early years at North Collier. What I remember most is, always a kind word, caring, and smiling. She was so proud of her children! You will be missed. God Bless!
A loving, caring and compassionate person to her patients, staff and family.

An inspiration to all who crossed her path. Linda was a lovely individual. She loved life and especially her family so much. God Bless her family at this very difficult time. She did not deserve this event, nor some of the difficulties handed to her recently. RIP sweet lady.
My deepest sympathy to the Daneau family. Linda was an awesome nurse and person. She always had a smile and calming way about her. She will be missed but will live in our hearts forever.
Our thought and prayers for your family.
Linda,I have not known your for very long but it was a pleasure seeing you in the mornings and I loved when you took those little babies from me. Your smile was contageous, you made things so much easier with your kind and calm disposition. You will always be remembered and I will always miss you. Keep on smiling I know the angels are happy to have you.
I have read all your friends and loved ones words.I cannot add anything that was not said.I have known you since we all began at north collier the love you showed for your family friends and patients was truly a daily event. We all miss you and never will you be forgotten.The bible tells us absent from the body present with the Lord.It is a comfort to know were you are now.It truly was a honor to be your friend.
My thoughts and prayers to the Daneau family. Linda was one of the happiest person I ever met. Memories of the fun times we had as "Soccer & Band MOMS" will last forever. Earth has lost a beautiful woman but heaven has gained a great soul. Until we meet again. Rest in peace Linda.
(Emily & Jackie's mom)

I am saddened by Linda's untimely death. I was lucky enough to have know Linda as colleague and even luckier to have her as my Nurse prior to my big surgery last year. It's true Linda was always smiling and so kind....she made a difference while I was waiting to got to surgery to calm my fears. It is my hope that her family knows how blessed they are to have had on this earth because she made a difference to so many!
I first met Linda when I became a RN and took a Med Surg position at North Collier Hospital in 2003. Never before or since , have I met a person like her. Linda always helped me... Answering my questions, helping me with procedures and pinch-hitting to start a new IV or admit a new patient when I was on overload! Linda always had a radiant smile and infectious laugh. She loved her children, her husban her Mom , her family, her Mayflower heritage, being a RN, doing crafts...she loved life! She loved to listen to her patients and hear about their lives while holding their hands and comforting them. She was my mentor, my friend, a true Angel! 2 years ago, I had to have day surgery, and was very scared....lo and behold, as I entered pre-op, who greeted me? Yes, Linda. I knew I was in excellent hands. Linda started my IV with such gentleness and ease, and promised me that she would be there when I awoke. True to her word, there she was, bantering with my husband about their beloved Patriots! That smile... Beautiful! When I read about Linda and the tragic accident, I did everything I could to convince myself that this could not be Linda. I cried, I screamed in denial, I got angry, I wept...then, finally, I said to myself "Linda will not have to wait to get her wings - she was born with them." The name Linda means beautiful...what a perfect fit. May God welcome her with open, loving arms. May those same loving arms, comfort her family. Linda, I am truly blessed to have known you. I am SO thankful that I told you how much I loved you! You taught me how to sit on the end of a patients bed and listen to them, to take the time for them, to be there for them - no matter how busy things became. You taught me how to treat each patient with dignity. You were a true Angel. Til we meet again...
Linda I am a better person to have known you. I miss you so much.
Our paths crossed many times over the years. I remember Linda rushing to the softball game after a long day of work hoping to make it in time to see Christine bat, spending Friday nights making sure the Estero Band stayed upright instead of passing out due to heat & dehydration, and the gleem in her eye as she watched the video production Danny would put together for programs at EHS. She was so very proud of her kids and their accomplishments. It was a privilege to work with you & get to know you as an individual, not just a mom. Rest in peace Linda. Your legacy lives on in so many ways.
When I became a new RN in 2003, I worked on North Collier Med Surg. It was there that I met Linda. She was the epitome of a Nurse, my mentor; loving , giving, kind and patient. She always had words of love and encouragement. When times on the floor were stressful, Linda calmed me down - just by being Linda. When I would have a difficult patient, or a IV blew - Linda was always there to help. Years later, I needed surgery...I was scared and praying for a familiar face. Guess who was there? Linda... she came in started my IV, talked with me, comforted me, and assured me that she would be there when I woke up. When I opened my eyes, there she was, talking about the New England Patriots with my husband. Her smile, that beautiful, generous smile... the beautiful natural blonde hair! When I read in the newspaper that God had taken Linda home, my first response was "Linda didn"t have to earn her wings, for she truly always had them - she was an Angel." Linda spoke of her family with such love and joy - may God comfort you today and always. Linda was loved by everyone - I am so blessed and privileged to haven known and loved her.
There really aren't words to describe how truly awesome of a human Linda was. I was fortunate to work with her and know her. I will forever have the great memories of times past. I would love to be able to talk to her again. I know where I have to go to see her again. No doubt, she is in heaven.
Our thoughts and prayers are with your family.
Linda was a wonderful person with a heart of gold. Her compassion for helping others went beyond just her everyday life. I had only known Linda for a short time but one of the most beautiful people I have ever known. I will miss her so much. She was a great friend to all. May she rest with God in a peaceful place.
We met Linda and her family when Danny and our children were part of the Estero Wildcats Band. We will miss her quick smile and friendly disposition. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family.
Linda was a true inspiration to all nurses. Her sense of caring and a smile that lit up the room. May God bless you and your family.
We are so saddened about Linda's passing. We had only met her once. She had come out to see for a medical visit the day before she died, What a wonderfully caring person she was. She told us about Royal Scoops ice cream, which she was raving about. Linda, we thank you for giving us the chance to meet you, Our deepest sympathies to her family,
Wendy & Bruce

God has an angel in heaven now, but one that will be greatly missed here!
To Marion, Lisa, Dan, Danny and Christine; I was so shocked and saddened to hear of Linda's passing.

You will forever be in the hearts of all who knew you. You were 1 of the finest people I have ever known. Lesson learned....Live every day X O. Sherita
You greeted me every morning with...Helloooooo ...(I'm still smiling)..You showed me the ropes in preop, but you also reminded me of why we all choose this profession in the first place .....really to CARE for people..and some would roll their eyes or try to hurry you along, but you always found time to hear a person's amazing story ...like the lady who was painted as a young girl and in the painter's private collection his entire life...searching for his subject...she discovered her own portrait at an art show...amazing.....between the IV and the block you could find joy...like you.... AMAZING. ..You have always been so genuine & caring...and POSITIVE...when things look really bad...HAVE A PARTY!!!!
