So so sorry Greg, it sounded like they were enjoying retirement. Take care of Dad, it is a lonely time.

Linda was a truly wonderful human being and I am so grateful to have know her and to have had her as a colleague. She was intelligent, warm, and compassionate and had such a great sense of humor. I always enjoyed having cases with her and seeing her in court. She always greeted me with a hug and a smile--she was truly a rare breed. Even though the news of her passing saddens me, just thinking about her warms my heart. She was a true gem.

One of the few "advocates" to juveniles and others who had no voice but hers...

It is with great sadness that I offer my condolences. I knew Linda as an attorney. she was sharp, street smart, warm and ethical, a tough combination to find in the law profession. She also had a terrific sense of humor. I will miss her. Charlie
