Over the years she has shared her home with many Golden Retrievers, she considered them part of her family.  A special thanks to Lin’s friend Andrea and the staff at the Hospice Huntsville for their exceptional care.

    Pat,
    I just found out about Linda and wanted to say how very sorry I am for your loss. I always admired Linda’s feisty attitude and her sense of humour. Rumour has it that, as a student, she even managed to put Hank Beamer in his place. That must have taken a lot of courage. I’m sure you have hundreds of wonderful stories about Linda. Hold onto all those memories, Pat.

    My condolences on the passing of Lin. I had chatted with her in the past regarding our family history as I was doing genealogy research. Hold your memories close.
