Kenny, Heidi and family, I'm so sorry I just read about Linda. I have fond memories of her at "Back to the Beach" dancing and laughing. It won't be the same without her. My deepest condolences, Helen Lyman and the Lyman family.

I have not seen Linda in many years but knew her when renting an apt. from her Mom. Indeed Linda had so much life in her through thick and thin and I am so sorry to have just found out about her passing. Even in the photo posted here, I can see her love of life. I send my condolences to her children, whom I am so happy to see have their own families now, and to her sister. I am truly sad that she has passed at such a young age but as people below have said, she lived with her great love of life and zest.
God Bless the family.
With deep sympathy,
