So sorry to hear about our dear cousin Linda, I have many fond memories of our childhood growing up on Smith Street, it was always a treat when Uncle Bud and Aunt Louise would bring the kids down.
Thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

Dear Mike. I am so saddened by the loss of your beloved mom. She was a lovely lady and a dear, dear friend of me and my family for many years. I will miss her forever.

Only time will ease the pain you and the family feel now, but take comfort in knowing that she is now beyond all suffering and is at peace. She lives on in our memory.

Love from Joyce and family

Linda was my oldest cousin in the Guy family. I am Cathy Guy Robinson, Uncle Frank’s daughter, your grandfathers youngest brother. Although Linda was 12 yrs older than me I remember this beautiful young girl while I was growing up.
Even though we have only met a few times over the years Mike, you have my sincere condolances. Your mom was taken far too young.

Dear Mike, its hard to believe the loss of a good friend and mother to you and your family. I last saw her a few years ago after many years of not seeing her. It was the most happiest day as we chatted for a long time. I was looking forward to seeing her again. I will certainly miss her. I will always remember her.

Love from Lillian Wright August 12, 2018

We were so sorry to read of Linda’s passing; we hadn’t realized that she was so ill. We knew her at St. Paul’s United Church, especially on the Finance Committee. She was a lovely, gentle, quiet lady and she will certainly be missed.

I worked in the same federal branch of government in Nova Scotia as Linda did in Hamilton; we were colleagues as well as friends. I knew she and Joe for many years, and when we retired Linda and I Stayed in touch via phone calls and annual Christmas cards. Hers was often the first card I received each year and when one did not arrive this season, I tried calling her, only to learn her number is no longer in service. I was shocked and deeply saddened to read she passed away in August. Every time we talked Michael, she always spoke of you. You were her absolute favourite topic, and she was always very proud of you. I am so so sorry to hear she has passed away.
