Daryl, Stephanie, Stacie and Brigid,

On behalf of my mom, Dianne Fasoli, and the entire Fasoli family, you have our deepest sympathies. We will miss your mom. She was far more than a neighbor. We never worried about our mom because we knew Linda was next door and never hesitated to help our mom in a variety of ways. I had the great pleasure of seeing and talking with your mom many times during my mom's recent illnesses. She was among the sweetest people I've ever met. Linda will be deeply missed. Much love from all of the Fasolis.

Linda was truly an inspiration to all who had the pleasure of knowing her. She was always fun to work with and gave selflessly of her time with heartfelt generosity. She had the gift of warmth even with the briefest encounter.... and will be missed !
