I was so sad to hear last night that we lost Linda (Gabe N Abby Mom) to this horrible disease.  May her family find comfort in how much we appreciated all of her kind words and support over these past years.

Soar on the wings of eagles, dear sister.

We lost another dear sister, our  Linda, who was very positive, carring, warm, bright and supportive to all of us. She was Amazing mother and wife, friend and partner.

Tears  are pouring , right words are missing.

With deepest smpaty, Olga

My deepest condolences to her family, her friends and all those who met Linda in those CA gatherings and virtually, here.

Linda will always be that "Angel" who had been a part of this group.

In sympathy,

Doris

Her dignity, grace and empathy came across in each and every post, and message sent.   She was 1 in a Million.  My heart is sad for her husband, and young teen aged children.

Soar like an Eagle, my Dear Sister in PINK ..

I just read a few days ago she was fighting.It came sooner than I thought but at least she's no longer suffering.She will be missed by her Pink Sisters and Brothers.She still has children in school.So young to lose their mother. Also a husband who  will miss her terribly.

I remember years ago I told my friend "it must be hard to let your mother in law go".She said NO we want her to go SOON.All the family was wishing she would pass before she did.The granddkids had a hard time and wanted her to go.Even begging. That was years ago and now I see the reaason.I've never had someone die of cancer in our family.Heart disease etc but not cancer. Let them go.To hard on the patient and family.

Three Pink Sisters in the last 2 weeks if I counted right.The most at one time span since I've been on the Board.

LINDA will be missed by all who knew and loved her.Deepest Sympathy to her Family and Friends.

I frequently read but rarely post but I had to do so now.   I am full of heartbreak for such a loving, graceful, and funny angel.  I'm glad she's finally at peace and I hope her family find condolences in knowing how much she loved them. She will not be forgotten.

I hope that Linda's family can find some peace in the knowledge that she is no longer suffering.  She had such grace and a calm eloquent manner - and that was only one of the many reasons I admired her.  My deepest sympathies to her loving family.

My tears can't quit fallIng as I type. I'm so sad to hear that LIndia is no longer here with us but im thankful that she is no longer in pain. I will miss her lots. We got to know each other quite well as we are both TNIBC. Linda was and will always be my hero. She was a lady of grace, poise , and determenation. 

To her family, please know that she loved you more than anything in this world. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

So sad to lose such a special sister.  Kind, giving, inspiring, sweet....one of a kind.  My heart breaks for her dear children and husband. When I look up at the stars tonight, I'll see Linda & Chen smiling down at us, happy and free of pain.

Sweet Linda fought long & hard. With grace & dignity. Remission was fleeting for her. Rarely complained - and when she did, apologized for it.

I'll particularly always remember - with affection - her quiet courage, kindness, and unwavering compassion for others. Linda's life was cut far too short by evil cancer. My heart is broken (again) for her. For her two teenaged childred - good kids. And her devoted husband. My hopes & prayers are for them - that time will eventually grant them all healing, comfort & peace.

Kind regards, Susan

Linda was kind and courageous lady.  She always took time for newbies and was so supportive of everyone here.  Her pride in her children was so evident in her posts.  My heart goes out to her family and friends.  It is so hard to lose one of our family here.  So many others have expressed it better than I so I will just say, Linda, you will be missed.

Hi All,

I came on here today knowing I may find this news, but it is still a shock.  Linda was a bright soul with a great sense of humor.  Going through all she did her personality never wained.  I will miss her something terrible.  Between Claudia, Linda and my best friend Darlene dying my eyes have had a workout lately.  The tears just keep coming, so many women in the prime of their lives.  To her family my sincere condolences.  She is a bright shining star in the sky.

With Love,

Terry

I'm bumping this up as I want to be sure everyone knows that we have lost another very special person, Linda Simmons.  Her friend posted on her facebook page yesterday that services have not been arranged yet, but I wanted to let you all know that I am planning on attending - and I am also taking responsibility for a group contribution in her memory.  We will likely send flowers and whatever is left we will contribute to whatever charity the family designates in Linda's name.  But I will do whatever we, as a collective group, want to do.   Im just the local coordinator.  I have a PayPal Account or you can mail me a check if you wish to contribute.  Please send me a private message if this is something you'd like to do and I will give you my address and/or paypal information. 

We've had a really difficult few weeks amongst our csn group.  I know it's been really hard for me to come to grips with the loss of such dear, dear women in such a short period of time.  Wishing your all comfort and peace in remembering them.

Hugs,

Suzanne

So sad to hear that Linda is gone.  But I am so happy that she is out of pain and discomfort.  I have faith that she is resting comfortably in Jesus's arms.

This is such heartbreaking news, again!  We have had too much over the past couple of weeks.  Linda was a wonderful lady and her wise words of encouragement will be missed.  She was a fighter till the end.  I feel so sad for her children, Gabe and Abby and her husband.

Suzanne, I will definately get a contribution out to you today. 

RIP, sweet Linda!

Hugs,

Debbie

I could not belive that we had lost Linda so soon after an update on her. Hence, my previuos post. My heart is filled with a great sadness and my eyes are again filled with tears for our fallen sisters. My prayers go out to her family and all the other "PINKS" on this Board.

(((HUGS))) & Prayers

There are just too many  leaving us because of this monster. At least now Linda is no longer in pain and is in a much better place watching down over all of us. She will always be with us in our hearts. My sympahties to her family.

I haven't checked in for a while, and this news saddens me greatly. Linda fought bravely! I will always think of her when I put my ornaments on my tree at Christmas~she was my ornament buddie last year~ and she so thoughtfully gave me "handbag" ornaments, she knew how much I love purses!

~Be at rest sweet sister~

It happened so fast and too soon. I'm so sorry for Linda's family. The only solace I can find is there's no more pain.
