In Kona, she volunteered her time with the West Mediation Center of the Hawaii Bar Association. Linda enjoyed the people she met in the law profession. She gave her energy and time with her law expertise to help people. This was her gift. Her passion was buying and renovating homes with her husband, traveling the world, gardening and golfing. She was a fun loving, well rounded person. She returned to California in 2008 to be with family. We love and miss her dearly. We are forever grateful that she was our sister. Her family will scatter her ashes in Hawaii.
