Memories Timeline


  1. We lost a great lady last Tuesday. Linda was strong until the end and knew she had the love of family surrouding her. She geneously shared her passions of china painting and knitting with her family. Her talents were many. She will be missed by friends and family.

  2. I was the Chairperson of the Visually Impaired Program at the time when Linda arrived on the scene.

    I was so sorry to hear Linda had succumbed to her illness. Loss of those special people close to us, even when anticipated and living a fruitful life, is still a journey that is a difficult and individual one. I send my heartfelt thoughts your way and you travel this path.

    After I heard, all I could hear was her laugh and that sideways glace she always gave me when expressing her opinion or idea at work. Her job was one that required lot of self-initiative and willingness to work on tasks alone. She was a master at learning a task and always providing quality work. In preparing materials for our visually impaired students she was diligent, expedient, and methodical.

    She was a light in the office when ever we rushed in and out to see students. Since many of us were on the road most of the day she was a welcoming face in the office assisting with our work and checking up on student progress.

    I left BOCES in 1992 for another position and I will never forget the note she wrote me encouraging me and wishing me well in my new endeavor. She was always reaching out to others with encouragement or kind word.

    I’m sure you know all this about her. But I wanted to share t our time working together is a vivid and happy memory so her good nature spread well beyond your home.

    With Sympathy,

    Tom Gallagher

  3. My husband and I would like to express our sincere sympathy to the family and friends of your beloved Linda. Although we hadn’t had the opportunity to meet Linda personally we do understand the pain of losing one so dear to our hearts. We would like to share with you comfort we have experienced from Gods word,found in 2 Corinthians 1:3,4. Our Heavenly Father is truly a wonderful source of comfort, for he is always there for the broken hearted and he truly cherishes you, especially now in your time of sorrow ( Psalm 34:18, 1 Peter 5:7) Please take a few moments, share your memories with those who surround you, for the memories shared are the ones most truly cherished, may they bring you comfort and peace as you begin to heal. Take care of yourselves and each other during this very difficult time.
