She was an effervescent human who brought light to those around her.  Her kindness, empathy, and acceptance of all people were among some of her best qualities.  Linda made new friendships wherever she was and was well known for her quick wit, positive outlook and offbeat humor.

Dearest Linda, New to Virginia with NATO from Ottawa, Canada, we chatted at the Lynnhaven Starbucks. You drove me back to Creekside Drive in your van and offered to show me round the very next day. Sure enough, you showed up midday in a stunning yellow Corvette, roof down of course, glamorous blonde movie-star gal with a huge smile! What a wonderful welcome to America. Turns out you had YaYa friends too!! We had such fun Linda, you had such style and wit! My little family, we all loved you.

Thank you for the wonderful video. Linda and I were friends and classmates. We skipped school only once, got sunburned and caught. The gorgeous smile you see in all the pix of Linda in the video got us out of that particular fix.
