    My condolences to Linda’s family. Linda always had a smile and great attitude about life even with her health challenges. She was very friendly, quick to give compliments, had a great sense of humor and loved to tell me about her dog and cat. She will be missed.

  3. Joanne, Peter, Suzanne and Carolyn,
    I have not seen Linda probably since the year she moved west but I remember her well. She was very much herself , no airs or pretences. Loving in nature and even back on Prince Charles’s very great love for animals.
    Know she and Isobel are in good hands now with the parents and grandparents. Joanne I am sure you will notice the difference of her passing quite a lot as you were the one geographically closest to her. You all will miss her I am sure as she is one of your family and you have a close loving family no matter how many miles separate you.
    Condolences to all of you .
    Love Carolyn Stace
