Many of you will know Linda as Ziggi. She died two nights ago – peacefully and comfortably, I’m told.
She was one of the loveliest and dearest friends I’ve ever had and I’m so lucky and grateful to have been her friend during the last years of her life – She once said to me that she didn’t want to be remembered as she was in her last few months – but how could anyone forget the courage and humour she never lost. Nor the compassion for others and the fierce determination she had to do everything right, both in the daily minutiae of keeping things going while she struggled with the maddening constraints of illness, and in the wider world. From minute to minute and day to day she never gave up on her family, her friends, her animals or her principles.
She was kind, clever and a bit fierce!
Dear lovely Linda, I will miss you so much. Thank you for being my friend.
None of us who knew you will ever forget you.
