Send Condolence

Linda was my close friend through four years at Peabody High. We shared a special corner of Mr. Sanfilippo's biology lab as our homeroom and as our command post to navigate the twists and turns of adolescence. Linda's positivity and sense of humor when looking at life affected all of us in that corner, making us better humans for having known her. We recently got back in touch and enjoyed several wonderful phone conversations this past year, catching up on so many lost years. I am heartbroken to find that she is gone, and send my condolences to Allen and family. The world has lost much light and sparkle with Linda's passing. Her memory is a blessing to so many.

I have known Linda at least 40 years, a true friend always there through thick & thin. She accepted my current wife with open arms & stood for me when we got married 15 years ago. She will be missed & be in our thoughts forever. Our condolences go out to her family. With Love Bob & Nellie Harter

I pray God's comfort on her husband and sons. Linda was a lovely person. She suffered a long time; it is sad she has passed, but at the same time, it's a blessing to know she is fully restored and with her Maker. No one set a better example on how to keep going in the midst of serious illness.

Linda has been an inspiration to us. She had spirit and determination. I think of her as a role model who remained positive enduring many challenges. Her beauty is reflected in her writings. How privileged to have a copy of her writing: LIFE LESSONS FOR MY LITTLE ONE. You will be missed. May her neshama (soul) have an Aliyah.

So sorry to hear this sad news. Linda was my neighbor on Ebdy Street and took my daughter Sara’s Bat Mitzvah pictures. Ken went to school with my son Stuart. My condolences to all of you.
