My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Linda was a favorite cousin, and always so sweet to me when I was the youngest of all the cousins. She treated me like a little sister and was always kind. We had just reconnected again after many years, and I will miss talking to her.

I worked with Linda on the surgical unit and loved working with her. She took time to show me things when I first arrived. When I left I stayed in touch for many years. She will be missed.
