Linda was well known at the puppy rescue and had been volunteering since June of last year. She attended intakes as our resident puppy washer and adoptions as a senior adoption counselor. On occasion, Linda would bring her granddaughter Sydney to help at a few of our events and Sydney became well known too. Linda was fun to be around, easy to approach and easy to trust. She became a fast friend to most of us. We enjoyed spending time with her while eating and gabbing after intakes and at our book-swaps.

I will remember Linda for her hearty laughter, her genuine smile and her sensitive hugs. I will remember the generosity and thoughtfulness that she showed to those around her. I will remember the love that she had for our puppies, for us and for her family.
Linda contracted Bacterial Meningitis earlier this week . She passed away last night at Parker Adventist Hospital surrounded by her family. I will let you know when her service arrangements have been decided.
