Linda was an original, a unique soul in the true sense of the word. She was a masterful seamstress, who created beautiful things that appealed to the most discriminating taste. Her colorful lifestyle was displayed in her artistry. She was an artist in everything she did and was always excited about new and creative projects.
She loved to sing and dance. She was a visionary and way ahead of her time. She created things such as upholstery, leather luggage, clothing, accessories for clothing, window dressing and bedding. She also invented spoots, 3-D wall art and other wonderful things.
Yet, of all the things that she gave to us and the world, her greatest gift was her ability to love. She was a loving wife and a doting mother that taught her children to use their inherent goodness to succeed in this life. We miss our dear mother, sister, daughter and friend.
