I knew Linda my entire life. She was my mom’s best friend, and in the years since my mom died, she has been a lifeline to me, as the person still around who knew her the best.
Her laugh, big and beautiful, has echoed through my life. As a kid, sitting on the beach, surrounded by her friends, her laughter brought everyone together. At my wedding, I could hear it above the rest of the chatter and music, she and my mom having their own inside jokes 30 years old.
She was far too young, too good for this world. I’m so sorry to everyone in the family. I know her absence leaves an irreplaceable hole in your lives. I hope you’re able to fill it with so many happy memories.

I remember years back Linda saying the song "Into The Mystic" by Van Morrison was one of her favorites. Every time I've heard it since then I have thought of her. It's a beautiful song. Just like Linda...Beautiful. In the future when I hear it I know it'll bring tears to my eyes but also a smile because I'll think again of Linda's warm smile, kind heart and contagious laugh. She will always be remembered with love.
Dearest Linda rest in peace, and just like the song says..."Let Your Soul and Spirit Fly Into the Mystic"
My Deepest Condolences to All
