    Dear Ed & family, I was so sad to hear the news of Linda’s passing. She was such a fighter and such a beautiful ray of light to anyone who knew her. I worked with Linda for many many years. She always made me feel like I was one of her children. Such a good, caring , loving , genuine person. I hope that you find comfort in the days, months, years to come in all the beautiful memories you have. I will forever remember her love of Winnie the Pooh, trips to Hawii,, and how she called me kiddo! Linda certainly made her mark in this world! She will be sorely missed. Rest in Peace Linda. I love you.

    To Michael and the rest of the family –
    I will remember how much she was loved in NPHS and how she helped so many students find their better way. Linda always made the day brighter, and the evenings,too, sitting in the stands or the auditorium for so many performances. The rays of sunshine are a little dimmer today. May she find peace and happiness, herself.

    Dear Ed, Eddie, Michael, and Fran,

    Although I grew up in North Plainfield, I first met Linda when I started working at the Steeplechase Cancer Center in 2008. Linda introduced herself to me as the, “office mom.” We grew from coworkers to friends over a few short years. Linda showed incredible grace, peace, and strength over these last two years as she battled cancer. I will miss my friend, as will so many others who loved her. May your memories of Linda – wife, mother, daughter, and friend – sustain you, bring you comfort, and even laughter.
