I am so sorry to learn of Linda’s death. I worked her at the Argenzio School @ Lincoln Park for many years. We were both teachers helpers. I often sent cards and tried to phone Linda but to no avail. I did not know that she was so ill. May God rest her soul...she was a beautiful person and I am sorry that I was not aware of her illness.
