I know that the birds are quieter and butterflies less fanciful these days without their photographic champion to creatively imagine how their images could be "just so" perfectly and in that instant of complete communication with each  subject, press the shutter with her her love and appreciation to capture for infinity their beauty and grace. Thank you for letting us share your loss for it is truly ours as well.

I am so saddened by this loss of one of our own, someone we feel we "know" through the beauty of her unique "lens on the world". She gave us inspiration and brightened our days with her amazing way of looking at nature and our world. We will all miss her and I'm thinking of you, specifically, Pati. It is those left behind that have to work to mend the gaping hole left in our hearts when we lose someone we love so much. I'm wishing time and happy memories to work their healing magic on you, so that when you think of Linda, you will smile and laugh, thinking of the good times and crazy moments that sisters share. Take care.

I am so sorry Pati! I heard today and cried. I am still choking up and having trouble typing this little note. Linda and I wrote to each other often and I have had her on my prayer list for a long time, ever since she told me about her cancer. She was such a talented photographer just like you and your styles were like birds of a feather, literally speaking! She will be so missed here. I don't even have the words for what you are feeling. I have a sis too and could not imagine losing her at such a young age. You and your family are in my prayers Pati.
May the Lord's peace be with you and His face shine upon you! Always celebrating life no matter what and celebrating that your sister is in Heaven with Him!
Praising the Lord for that, Debra

The tribute to your sister is beautiful. Please accept my sympathy. I am very saddened by her passing..During a period of time when I was unable to watch and photograph birds I would come here and look up her pictures they quenched my love of beautiful birds. She was one of my very favorite photographers here. I was so stunned and complimented when she sent me this message.

Hi Cathy..
Just wanted to thank you for all the wonderful comments you leave me. I'm sooo glad you like my bird pics. That is a major compliment considering that YOU were my inspiration when I first started posting to wunderground. You take the most amazing bird shots of anyone on this site! Missed you when you were gone and so glad you're back!

Curiosity...?? Where do you live?

Thanks again!
Linda

Again please accept my sympathy I will truly miss her photography and her presence around WU.

It's been raining all day and the sullen mood made me SOB while I read your heart felt comments. Linda would be so happy to know just how many brothers and sisters in the WU family cared and loved her so much! It will take a long time for things to get back to "normal" around here. (if they EVER do!)
I'm praising the Lord for all the prayers that are going out for us. Thankyou, Thankyou, Thankyou, each and every one of you.
God bless you for being here!!!!!
Pati
(p.s.: FYI, Linda was going to be 69 next month.)

Oh no, Pati! I had no idea she was THAT sick! Like everyone else, I am shocked and saddened to learn of her passing. So glad to learn she is with the Lord -- one day there will be a big reunion of WUG people who may never have met face to face on this earth, but we will be friends forever in that place. Linda's work will not be forgotten, so talented as she was and as you still are, two artists who paint with the same brush. My prayers are with you and your family.

Please accept my sincere sympathy for your loss. Sisters are so special! I have two of them and if I lost one, I would feel like I had lost part of myself. Linda did the type of photography that I hope to do. Please know that many people are holding you in their prayers. Hang on to the precious memories and may God comfort you.

I was so sad to hear the news of your dear sister's passing, Pati. Like so many have said, Linda was an inspiration to us with her beautiful photography....and although I only spoke with her personally on a few occasions, I know she must have been a beautiful soul to take the lovely, perfect photos of the natural world that she took. She will be greatly missed by this WU community and by you and all those who knew and loved her in her personal life...but you also know that one day you will meet again and what a celebration that will be. My condolences to you and sending prayers for comfort and strength during this most difficult time. You have honored her beautifully with this lovely photo. God bless you.

Oh, my God, Pati, I don't even know what to say. I have been very spotty on the site (today is my first time here since February 14), and when I saw your eye-catching Sisters FOREVER!, I just thought, it can't be Linda, there are five of you, and, though never wanted, I hoped it was an older sister whose natural time had come. I feel my chest so tight and painful to see that it was her. We had exchanged messages with each other and she was exactly like her photos and handle: soft, feminine, graceful, luminous. My only comfort right now is that she could at least cherish her best gift of life Abrielle (her words) for nine months. This is my first time to witness a Wundergrounder passing away. I don't think I can post my photos now as I had planned. My deepest sympathies go to you, her family, and everyone who loved her. Thank you for sharing with us your soul touching tribute to her.
