I continue to see her as I knew her at Abbot...full of energy and so positive. I remember her most on the athletic field as an enthusiastic competitor with a smile on her face.
So sorry for your loss....

I attended Abbot Academy with Lindsay. I remember her as kind and caring, with a very positive presence. She was always an enthusiastic participant in her athletic endeavors!

I was fortunate to reconnect with her at our last reunion. I will miss her.

Please accept my condolences for your loss.

Lindsay was my first friend at Abbot and one of my roommates.
She had a heart big enough to care for us all and boundless energy and optimism. I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to know her for she was a truly authentic, good and compassionate person. I will never forget her.

Lindsay and I were close friends at Abbot Academy. We just reconnected a few years ago, and I was reminded of what a warm, kind and joyous spirit she was. She will be missed. All blessings to Lindsay and her family.

Lindsay was one of my dearest friends at Abbot Academy (Andover). We first met across the hall in our dormitory, and then we realized that we both lived within 70 miles from one another in Pennsylvania. Lindsay was a beautiful, caring, and brilliant woman, and we stayed in touch occasionally in the last 30 years. Rest in peace dear friend.

I remember Lindsay showing off jewelry that her husband Bob had made for her. Once I found her looking through the grass around the parking lot at work (March of Dimes). She was looking for intact acorns that Bob could use as molds for jewelry.

I will miss Lindsay. I would hide out in her office when I needed a reprieve. We would talk and I would leave feeling better. All my best to Lindsay's family.
