Linda was a people person, and she was very talented in her field of work. This made her not only an amazing hairdresser, but also a dear friend to many people. She had a big heart, and she was always quick to offer help and support to those around her. Linda shared her knowledge with other girls in the industry, and she taught those girls to become talented hairdressers. Linda was loved by many people, and she will be missed greatly.
