When Linda and her family moved to Trumbull, Linda and I became friends while attending Middlebrook. I thought of her whenever I was on Madison Avenue and passed by her house. A very lovely girl. My deepest sympathy to her family. RIP, Linda.

I remember Linda very well, she was always an "up" person, friendly and kind. Will think of her and all the others who have been taken from us.
Gwendolyn R. WinklerSorry to hear about Linda. We went to both Middlebrook and Central.
Always so upbeat.
