Linda brought so much love, compassion, and care to all with whom she came in contact. She was the example of The Good Samaritan. She gave dedicated care to her family. Yet her compassion was shared with many others. When she and Gary made their weekly visit to Scooter while he was at Brookdale, Linda was so comforting. She never failed to make Scooter and the other residents the focus of her conversation. She was so good at encouraging their interpersonal interaction and their maintenance of dignity. She also cared for and inspired the family members who were visiting their loved ones. I continue to admire her and am grateful to have known such a very special person. Many lives were made better because of Linda. My heartfelt condolences to our faithful friend, Gary, and to the rest of Linda`s family. God bless. With love, Jean Wheeling
