Linda Coleman RANDOL

Linda died early Saturday morning, January 19, 2013 at home with her family in Santa Rosa, CA. She is survived by her four children, Enrique Sanchez and his daughter Julia; Ramon and Ariane Sanchez and their children Arman and Riana; Francisco Sanchez and his son Maleek; Margui Sanchez and her partner Eric and their children, Isabella, Sophia, and Marcel; her sisters, Kathy, Bonnie, Valerie, brother Edwin, their spouses; 11 nieces and nephews and their families. Linda was a beautiful, healthy, honest soul. She loved life and lived a life of love and sacrifice for her children, grand children, nieces, nephews, brother, sisters and friends. She loved nature walks all over Marin and Sonoma County or any other rural trail, paved street or sidewalk she set her feet upon, and loved to take notice of the little things in life so many of us overlook. She was a mover, very knowledgeable of her surroundings; the land beneath her feet, the birds in her skies, the plants and animals of her earth. She walked always, a deep but gentle thinker; easy to talk to, quick to listen, yet honest, kind and thoughtful of others. Even a stranger could get a warm heartfelt greeting from her. Linda left us in resonance with release, still eager to live. Linda, you will remain with all of us forever in our hearts and minds. Mother, sister, caregiver, friend; know you are loved and missed. You meant and will always mean so much to so many.
