    I am so saddened to see that Linda passed away. I work as a caregiver and spent 3-4 months with her last year thru an agency. She was so patient and kind. I was not always the best fit for her (I had to be told how to do things over and over again ha ha!) but she still was nothing but pleasant. Always positive. I loved chatting with her. I wish I had gotten to spend more time with her because she really was one of a kind. We bonded as Mothers, she lit up when she talked about her boys and was so proud of them. She will be missed greatly.
