Pat VandeSompelBarry and Family My heartfelt condolences to all of you. Linda was so special. I knew her through the Byron clinic -- she was always so knowledgeable and helpful. We often talked about U.S. shopping trips and she updated me on the family. I saw Linda last year, shortly after she had been diagnosed and, in true Linda fashion, she was facing the future with a positive frame of mind. My thoughts are with you at this time.
