  1. Dear Jim, JC, and Joe,
    Ed and I were so sorry to hear about Linda’s passing. We had no idea that she was so ill. We are so sorry for your loss.
    During your time on Lalley Blvd, Linda became known to everyone. She was always friendly, continually involved in the community, and always willing to lend a hand wherever needed. She was someone known for her commitment to others and we are lucky to have known her.
    Ed and I are now living in Florida for most of the year and we are unable to make it back to CT in time for Linda’s Mass on Saturday.
    Please know that we will keep you all in our prayers during this difficult time.
    Our thoughts are with you and your families.
    Janice and Ed Dayton

  2. Jim,JC, & Joey,
    I can’t tell you how sad I was to hear of Linda’s passing. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. I have so many fond memories of our neighborhood and living next door to your family. Linda always enjoyed giving to others, she never forgot a birthday, anniversary, or special occasion. I will always remember hear as a “Kind Heart”. I know this is such a difficult time for all of you. I hope that her love will surround you and comfort you. My deepest sympathy. Love and prayers, Sandy (G) Arnold

  3. So sorry to hear of Linda’s death. I have such good memories of her as a parent at Fairfield Country Day School, and I have even more vivid memories of the pies that she would bake and bring to me at school. She was generous and kind, and out world needs more people like that. My thoughts are with her family.

  4. Dear Crowley Family,
    I’m very sad to learn of Linda’s passing. She was a friend to me and all of the Fairfield Beach residents. I happily pulled weeds, cleaned the beach, and planted flowers along side her. She was an amazing advocate for the protection of the LI Sound, also the safety and beautification of our neighbourhood. Linda was always surprising me with lovely little thank you gifts. The last one was an amazing raspberry pie that ended up as my Birthday dessert. I will always remember her fondly. My sincere sympathies to your family. She will be missed. Especially this spring when I will clean and plant with out her.

  5. James,
    We were saddened to hear that Linda had passed away. We all know that death is our worst enemy. That is exactly what the Bible calls it. It also tells that we will be reunited with our loved ones right here on a paradise earth with no more sickness or death. James you may wonder how can this be. I am sending you a link to a short video that explains how this is possible. Our thoughts and prayers go out to you at this most difficult time in your life.
