  1. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family. We will always remember Linda for her caring ways and sweet smile. She was a devoted mother and a loving grandmother. We had commented many times that she was the perfect fairy godmother – from her sparkling eyes, happy smile and sweet, loving demeanor. She will be missed by many.

  2. So sorry to hear of Linda’s passing. I’ve known her for quite some as we were both dental assistants in the same building in New Haven for many years working down the hall from each other’s. Prayers and thoughts to all her family

  3. So sorry to learn of Linda’s passing. We have been friends since meeting in Dental Class and stayed in touch over the years. She was one of the most caring and thoughtful people ever and certainly truly another Angel watching down on everyone now.
