Over the past nine years, Linda has lived with the debilitating progression of MSA. She confronted her illness privately but bravely. Linda’s girls, Meg and Ellie meant the world to her. She was always smiling whenever they were in her presence. Linda had the best laugh and thrived on laughter and a good joke.
