Georgian, Linda, passed away on May 1, 2012 in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, from multiple myeloma. An internationally renowned intuitive, author, and public speaker, Linda was born on October 23, 1945 in Cleveland, OH, but had made her home in South Florida for many years. She received a B.S. in Education from Ohio University, and an M.S. from Florida Institute of Technology, where her groundbreaking thesis was "Nutritional Approaches to Learning Disabilities." For seven years in the 1990s, Linda hosted the national talk show-style infomercial "Psychic Friends Network" (with her co-host, singer Dionne Warwick), which still holds the industry record as the most successful TV infomercial ever produced. In her life-long devotion to teaching, Linda approached her work as a professional intuitive as a way to educate and help people. That commitment was the focus of Linda's four books published by Simon & Schuster, including "Your Guardian Angels," popular worldwide and published in several languages. As an international public speaker, Linda focused on health, spirituality, and personal empowerment. Throughout her career, she also gave private intuitive readings to thousands of clients, including many prominent in entertainment, media, and business, and she consulted with law enforcement on missing persons cases. Linda was a frequent guest on local and national radio and TV shows, and she appeared on CNN, Entertainment Tonight, NBC Nightly News, Politically Correct with Bill Maher, among many other television programs. She was profiled by many newspapers and magazines, and also hosted her own TV and radio interview programs in Florida. She is survived by her sister Sandra Post; her niece Patti Post, her nephew Daniel Post; and many friends and colleagues. She is now with the angels she firmly believed had guided her throughout her life. Linda's life will be celebrated at a private memorial with family and friends.
