    Brooks and family: I am so very sorry to hear of Linda’s passing. Annie told me of your loss and I wanted you to know that Linda and you are in our thoughts and prayers. Although we haven’t kept in touch over the years, I think of our friendship, dinners, and fun times in California and Seattle more often than you would guess. Linda was a fun person, a good friend, and a special mom. God bless and God speed to you, Linda. Ed and June Sherlock, Tucson AZ

    Dear Brooks and family: Your hearts must be broken. Know that I am holding you close in my prayers. Linda was such a bright light, and always so warm, upbeat, and ITALIAN! I loved that about her. I know you will miss her beyond words. I hope you will take comfort from the many people who are sharing your sorrow, and in the years of wonderful memories you have. It was a pleasure and blessing to know Linda, and have shared some Christmas spirit with you all over the years.

    This is a beautiful photo of Linda and captures her so wonderfully. I really liked the obituary you wrote. I am going to miss her so much – she was always a delight. I am so thankful that we have got to spend so many times together over the past years and I will cherish those memories. God Bless you and your wonderful family.
