We were so sorry to hear of Linda's illness and passing. We were friends dating back to Hewlett-Packard and remember some of Linda's wonderful meals (especially desserts). Also, she was a whiz at mah jong! We will miss her. Sandy and Gerry Sadow

We are very sad to hear that Linda had passed away and had lost her battle with leukemia. At the last reunion in Savannah, photo September 2021, she was so energetic and full of life. When we hosted Berlin 2018, she stayed a week longer so we had the opportunity to spend more time together. We send our deepest condolences to all the family and pray that you find courage and peace at this difficult time. We pray for her eternal repose and may she forever Rest In Peace. Linda will always live in the memories of all who loved her. ✝️ 💐

I got to know Linda while we were expats in China. I have so many fond memories of her during that time -- how she purchased the "essentials" for our apartment so we could hit the ground running when we arrived; teaching me Mah Jongg and playing at Long Bai every Friday morning; dinners out every Friday night with our husbands; traveling the Silk Road together; and introducing me to the dumpling restaurant at Yu Yuan, one of my very favorites in Shanghai. You will be missed by so many. May you rest in peace now.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

It is with a very sad heart that I have to say farewell to my very dear friend Linda today. I will miss you and chat quietly every Day. May you Rest In Peace with no more pain and stay with me while I show you my country in a slightly different way. Always welcome with me anytime. I’ll miss our FaceTime calls to catch up but know you will be watching over me.

I find that words cannot console what time will take to heal. I wish you all the best memories to bring you comfort during this time. She brought happiness and joy to everyone around her. She was a truly wonderful person and a great friend, I will cherish the time we had as friends. I will smile and think of her when I see her favorite flowers.
