So sorry for your loss Matt and Chrissy. I have such fond memories of your family at Yerba Ct, and your mom was always such a kind and happy person. When i think back to those days, I always picture her with a big smile on her face, doing some gardening in the Santa Rosa sunshine. Someone once remarked, "They may forget what you said, but they never forget how you made them feel." Linda always made me feel special and I have fond memories of your lovely mom and of you both.

I am so sorry to hear of Linda’s passing. I so much enjoyed her friendship during those days at Monty. She was a mentor to many, including to me as well. I was thinking back to the heyday of the PE department, when she, Marie, Carol, Barb and Bev staffed the girl’s side. How welcoming they all were, leading me to be determined as a new sub that THAT group of gals was where I wanted to end up.
She was a superlative counselor as well, guiding students and staff with a firm but gentle hand. We laughed and commiserated often in her cozy counseling office.
Thank you so much, Linda, for all of it. You will remain in my heart and mind. You were the best!

There is so much to say about Linda. At work she was a great leader, a responsive counselor, and we worked so well together that she made a very difficult job a lot easier.
As a travel companion we had FUN; easy to travel with, and so willing to explore, and relax, and come up with great ideas.
She was a big positive in the quality and experiences in my own life.
Yes, I'll miss you, Linda
