Hi Vince,I am sure that at times it must have felt like it, but you and Linda never traveled alone on this journey. All of us were privileged to be a small part of your lives. We learned a lot about cancer, the costs, dark humor, hope and bravery from both of you!

 This will be my last post to the caring bridge.                       
I was at the party held for Linda and said a few words from the heart.  
I had not written anything down and had not really planed on speaking. But like I did at our Dad's funeral I just got up and said what I felt.  When I was walking up to talk at Dad's funeral I looked over at Linda and she had this really worried look on her face like, Oh oh, What is HE going to say ?? I'm sure that when Will and I got up at her party she had the same look on her face.. HA                                  

 Anyway at both occasions I was very glad that I did speak as I think  
that if helped me more then anyone else. So with that said all I can add is that we will all miss her and the tree that I planted is doing fine.
I just have to cut around it every time I cut the grass so she will    
always be in out yard as well as her own back in Wisconsin. 
          
 I only have one more joke.                                             
A traveling salesman walks into a bar in Texas and asked for a small  
coke. The waitress hands him a big coke. He say I only asked for a small coke. Waitress says "everything is big in Texas" The man then asks for a small French Fries. The waitress hands him a big order of French Fries. Again he says I ordered a Small Fries. Again the waitress says "everything is big in Texas" The man asks where is the restroom. Waitress - Down the hall and take a right. The man walks down the hall and takes a left and falls into the swimming pool and yells. Help, Help, don't flush the toilet...
(everything is big in Texas)

Love Rick and Trisha.

Dear Vince and family,


We were so sorry to hear of your loss at Linda's passing. She was a remarkable person, and we certainly felt privileged to know her. We are so glad she touched and enriched our lives, first as a great personal chef, then as a friend.


 


We will be out of state this weekend, so cannot attend the memorial gathering. Know, however, that we will be there with our thoughts and prayers.


Fondly,
Julie Tharalson

Vincent-


I am so sorry to hear about Linda's passing. I never had the pleasure of meeting her in person, but I appreciated her energy in getting together the nutrition blog network that I was a part of. She will be missed. You and your family remain in my thoughts and prayers.


Take care,

Oh noooo - darn cancer. I am the Executive Director of DES Action USA, with about 2,000 members, so unfortunately I don't know each one. But Linda was different. We stayed in touch through the years as she probed health issues caused by the anti-miscarriage drug, diethylstilbestrol (DES). Clear cell adenocarcinoma of the cervix is one of them. But we also shared our joys in raising daughters. And Vince, you don't know me, but I've heard so many wonderful things about you that I feel as if I know you! I will never forget Linda and her ability to continue living large even while battling cancer. I never got to meet her because I live so far away. But across the miles her passion, love of life and family resonated in my email inbox. I am not surprised that she died the way she lived - on her own terms, not far from her garden - and kitchen.Vince, Amy and Molly you are in my thoughts - and especially next Saturday when you remember a life well lived. Linda will be in my thoughts, too.

Vince, we are so sorry for your loss.  What a great adventure you two had together after that first meeting over coffee!  If there was ever two souls who belonged together it was you two.  Not many couples share a love of so many of the same things as you two.

Amy and Molly and family, we hope that you can take comfort in the fact that Linda touched so many many lives during hers.  That is a great comfort to me when I think about my Mom and Dad, and the long lines of people who came to pay their respects for them.  You can feel what a positive force they were in the world.

All our love, Sonja and John
