Not sure what to say?

Linda and I have been friends since we were 11 together in elementary school. She was always trying, in the words of Tennyson, "to strive, to seek, to find - and not to yield." Her going leaves a large hole in my universe.

Linda spun sounds to emotions. She will missed by the many whose lives she touched. My late husband and I were lucky to have had a private performance by Linda and her long-time musical partner, Michael Kac, for my 50th birthday in Minneapolis. I send deepest hopes for peace for Beth and the family. Susan

I met Linda almost 40 years ago. It is difficult to describe her influence on me. She was a teacher in many ways. She obviously had a gift for the guitar but also a wonderful talent for people. My condolences to her family.

Linda was a wonderful friend, superb musician, and great teacher. I offer my heartfelt condolences to her parents, her sister, and her many friends and students.

I will miss you.

She was one of our kindest friend for over 30 years and a great teacher to one of my son's Josh Wertheimer

Look at the stars,
How they shine and glow.
Some of the stars died
A long time ago.

Still they shine
In the evening skies,
For you see, like love,
Starlight never dies.
