Dear Linda's Family, I was honored to know this remarkable human being. She was my therapist for several years, during which time she literally saved my life. She taught me to love and forgive and to find joy in life. She did this with incredible intelligence, insight and humor. I think of her often as I move through life now. I am forever thankful that I was able to know her and forever grateful to the universe for allowing me to find her. You are all blessed to come from her. Fondly, Diane D.

My dearest Linda...words cannot possibly express my gratitude for what you have given me. You gave me life when I had none left in me. You gave me hope when it had all dissolved. You taught me to find joy again. You brought humor to a very desperate time and helped me carve a new path. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I will forever remember you.

To your family...I am truly sorry for your loss. You, more than anyone, know what a very special human being Linda was. She will always live in your memories I am certain.

From one of your non-biological children...I'm sure there are many of us.

Linda was my mentor. I so appreciated her wisdom, compassion, humor and no-non sense approach. She will be truly missed.

May her memory be a blessing. I Remember her as a proud grandmother who became a mother again to her grandson in a very short period of time after one of our SSTAR meetings. Her son and grandson will miss this loving . in peace Linda.
