"LINDISIMA"
I miss you my dear friend. There are so many reasons that I do. You had a way of lighting up a room, making light of any challenging situation, keeping all of your friends laughing with your humor and wit. I especially miss the way you snorted each and every time you laughed. It made me laugh so hard at times. It's even funny now when I think of you that's the the first thing I think of and it makes me smile inside. So many memories we shared together with our adventure travel. India will never be thought of again, without you in my mind. There is a common thread amongst all your friends that I can hear and its that you had a bright light inside your soul and we all so miss that because you were so special to so many of us. Even when you got mad at me for being way too pragmatic...I can just hear you now...."DARLENE......That's quite enough".... as you also smiled in silent recognition that what I said was true... We knew each other well. Many things eye to eye. I so miss our conversations, having dinner together, chatting on the phone.... planning yet another trip. I always admired you. So strong, so determined, such wonderful tenacity. I had your back my friend... until I couldn't any longer. What a fight you gave. You were not afraid. Even at the end when I asked you if you were scared. I'm not afraid, I'm just tired you said. Your fight is over and now you are at peace my friend. In that I believe. You deserved the best. I so miss you my friend. I so loved you.

I had the great pleasure, honour, and blessing to be Linda's next door neighbour these past few years, but she was more than that to my family and I- she became our friend and then our family member. She was a great source of joy, laughter, love, beauty, sincerity, compassion, wisdom, and kindness. We often discussed raising a family, and she had a way of letting me express my struggles whilst teaching me to enjoy the moment. It was amazing- something I will forever cherish. We miss her deeply, and will always remember her. Last year, when I asked my nine year old son what he wanted to do for his birthday he said, "have birthday cake for breakfast with Linda." So we did, and it was divine. One day, my 6 year old had a friend over and I heard him say, "this patio belongs to Linda- she is my friend. Do you want to meet her? She is so nice, you should meet her." She was so special to us all. She lit up every room she entered and every heart she touched. We are better for knowing her and loving her. I miss her so much and wish she was still next door to me, so I could share the happenings of my day with her, do some gardening with her, sit down with her for a cup of tea, hear her laugh again. I love you Linda- you will always be my favourite neighbour and good friend.

We had the pleasure of being Linda's beach neighbors at Yellow Point Lodge for many years. Her infectious laugh will echo throughout the lodge, and of course at White beach. Linda showed such strength and grace as she enjoyed her last days at YPL. I know she will be with us in spirit this year and will certainly be in our hearts and thoughts always.

I feel as if a great light has gone out of all our lives with the passing of Linda. Even now months later it is hard to take in. As a fellow "yellowpointer" I and my parents have shared many years of wonderful memories and laughs, during our week there. Sunning ourselves on White Beach, Linda still with the ancient umbrella she got in Spain and an ever changing array of styles and luxury of beach chairs from plain back rests to in latter years a bright lime green full on lounger, which is now in my proud and grateful posession, given to me by the ever practical Linda last summer, along with her newer fancier beach umbrella. As an after thought though she said "but if I am still here I want to borrow them!". We all hoped and believed that would be the case but alas not to be. I can still hear her beautiful soprano voice lilting across the waves as she sang lustily, kicking up her heels in her version of water ballet, while we floated on a variety of inflatable loungers, the only way we managed to get her into the cold water! I am happy to have a lovely, unique collection of her jewllery to remember Linda by and to have seen her in Lions Gate Hospital and had a few good laughs with her. She also very much enjoyed the company of my now 91 year old mother and we enjoyed getting over to West Van when we could and were always met with a hospitable bowl of soup and goodies, not matter how Linda was feeling, along with a good natter! I helped her set up for Circle Craft one year was beyond amazed at the work she put into that effort, all by herself! She was much beloved by the fellow craft people, and when I went this year, all remembered her fondly and missed her presence at the fair. Her light is still shining somewhere, it is hard to believe otherwise. This year at Yellowpoint I encourage everyone to bring a chandelier or some sort of lights, for their cabins so we can light up the sky in Linda's honour. She started this tradition of bring a chandelier for our rustic cabins a few years back-now we must all bring one or even two! I hope the family can take some comfort in knowing Linda made a huge difference in many people's lives, bringing love and most especially laughter and great hilarity to all of us. We will miss her dreadfully.

I am so sorry for the loss of your loved one. Please find peace and comfort in Psalms 119:76.
