Linda and I go back 50 years. We met when both of us worked in Portland for the Oregon State Board of Health. We hit is off immediately. She was a best friend, a funny friend with the greatest sense of humor. She had a quick wit and so very kind. We ended up marrying the same year to Jim and Tom, who were childhood friends. There were lots of fun times sharing dinners, playing cards and taking the trip of a lifetime to Europe in 2001.
Our deepest sympathy go out to her family and we know she will be missed so much by all....I miss her already.

I will miss Linda's cheerful attitude and friendly smile at our former high school classmates' luncheons. I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to get reacquainted with her more recently and I will remember her fondly.
