|Let the memory of Linda be with us forever|
This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Linda Balcomb, 69, born on July 15, 1944 and passed away on December 21, 2013. We will remember her forever.
This is to be a living tribute to an incredible woman, mother, sister, grandma, and friend. We all carry a piece of her in our hearts and you are invited to share your stories, songs, video, and photos here. Through our individual experiences we will build Linda's life and provide a complete picture for all of us to cherish through the years to come.
"Do Not Stand At My Grave and Weep
Do not stand at my grave and weep;
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints in snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there, I did not die.
Mary Frye (1904-2004)
Your spirit lives on in all of us, Linda."
"I'll never forget my first introduction to Linda and Heather as they sailed into Hilo and executed a maneuver never to be forgotten and probably never duplicated. Our two children became kindred boat raised kids and we sailed in and out of the same ports including anchoring at Mala Wharf for months. She was my friend and confidant through many years and phases of our lives and I Ioved her dearly and still do. Okole maluna my friend."
"I have so many great memories of Linda. She was a coworker and friend for many years at Strobe. I loved morning conversations with her, and always looked forward to sharing stories back and forth about happenings in our lives.
There are a lot of things that remind me of her -- certainly every time I see husky dogs or hear about the Iditarod I remember fondly all the excitement and enthusiasm she had every year.
I feel richer for having known Linda."

"Mom, I'm so very grateful for the wings you gave me. You were always near and always strong. I love you."
