Jennifer Eker:
Linda was like family to me. It is with an extremely heavy heart that I write this note, but I know Linda, and I know she'd want all of us to be happy and smile and remember the good times with her... and so that is what I am going to do. She was my mom's best friend in the entire world, and I will miss seeing her when I visit my home in NJ, and I will miss her presence and energy that made a room light up when she walked in. She was always so positive and always made me feel so important. She even came to my wedding with Frank all the way in Santa Barbara, and that meant the world to me. I think that was one of the really special traits Linda had - she made EVERYONE around her feel important and loved. She repeatedly called me Kate Hudson every time she saw me. :-). I loved sharing in her love for makeup. She would come to my mom's house with loads of new makeup for my mom to try. Linda, I miss you already. Although I didn't see you SO often, I always though about you and Frank and looked forward to the next time I would see you. I promise to try to fill the void my mom now has with you not physically here with us anymore. We'll always have you watching down on us now, beautiful angel. I love you so much! Jenn Eker (aka Kate Hudson)

Jeanette Rotanelli :
Dear Linda, I so much adore and love you always.I can't believe I won't be seeing you. When we connected after years you fulfilled a void in my heart since I lost my husband two yrs ago. You became myBFF. I can see us laughing about things you did and said. Shopping together at Ridge Hill, going to the beach, eating with our dearest group of friends that are so special,seeing your lovely sister Lenore when she came in to see your lovely Mother in the nursing home with you and than went out.Taking me for my shots in my neck, and was laughing so hard when we got lost and made four circles around the wrong way until Skip help us.You took me to the Posh art drawing to raise money for your daughters rescue animals,and I brought wine and had a lot of fun drawing.We laugh all the time. Every time I look at the drawing on the wall I thing of you.You called me in the morning so bubbly and I was still walking around like a zombie just waking up.Theres so much more, but I want to say you were my right arm.I was lost until we got together after so long.You passed too soon, we had so much more to do together.I love you and miss you already. Until we meet again.😂😘❤️🌹💃

Miss you, miss you, miss you. You'll be in my heart forever.

My heart is broken Linda.. I miss our morning talks and our plans for the summer. It's so hard not having you in my life anymore. Our dinner in Bronxville and later dessert in your beautiful home was the last time I saw you. We all had such a wonderful time. Who would have thought it would be the last time I'd see you . No more pain and anxiety Lin. You are with your savior and I know someday I will see you again. For He so loved the world, he gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him, shall not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16
