Dear Jennifer, Katharine, George and families: Our deepest condolences on the passing of Linda. She was indeed a splendid person, and a role model in so many ways. We admire her courage over these past few years, and thank her for her visit to London Curling Club just over a week ago. May you find consolation in your loving families.

Katharine, Jennifer, Kelly, Scott and families. I am thinking of you all over the last few days since Linda's death. Mom told me on the weekend and I have been trying to figure out a way that I could be there to give you my condolences in person. I could not get that to happen. I just want you to know that I am with you all in my thoughts today and over the next while you mourn her passing and celebrate her life. She was a wonderful person and did help me out several times when I needed assistance with my families health issues. Every one is fairly well now and we have a new addition, Avery, September 2015 who is keeping us all busy. You will all miss her dearly. Remember her with fond memories, even though it will be difficult and tears may fall. She was a great lady and helped many. My thoughts and prayers are with you in this sad and difficult time.
