  1. To Joe, her family, friends, former co workers, etc. my sincere sympathy. She reflected upon you all frequently… being so grateful for the time donated by those at LMU for her treaments, etc. Linda always was helpful, supportive, fun loving and a breath of fresh air. I enjoyed all of our adventures shared with our sisters “The Graduates”, Laguna, The Magic Castle, dining at Alejos and other eateries over the years, Sigrid’s home, Linda Marie’s home, Rita’s home, Revlon Walk for Women’s Cancers, etc. We had good times together. Sharing life events over the years, her bridal shower and wedding. She loved crafts and family, always sharing and caring for her aunt, neice and nephew, keeping every one informed of her current health updates. I will miss Linda Marie….. I am happy to have known her… The world is a better place…
