I knew both Linda and had the pleasure of working with both her father Ken and husband John. Linda was always so sweet and kind. Watching her as a mother, wife and daughter in life was seeing a good role model and person. Although I am greatly saddened for the passing , I had been blessed in having seen this beautiful life in her full glory. We once shared a camping trip and it brought the friendship to even a greater level of respect. It was a hoot to watch her and Jack in playful conversations. )) My condolences to her loved ones.
