I knew Linda in the 70's- we were at Transcendental Meditation teacher training together in France. She was a wonderful person, down to earth, fun, and so dedicated to the TM Movement. I was thinking about her, did a quick search, and found this blog. Wonderful she had a child.

More than 4 years have gone by since Linda's passing and I have just discovered this blog while surfing the Internet. So, I thought I would add a few comments of my own.

I very much enjoyed Linda's company during the last 4 years of her life as her companion and dear friend. Linda was an elegant and beautiful woman. She lived life with an ease and grace that few have ever discovered or experienced.
It was such a great honor and a privilege to have known her. There was never a moment that either of us ever felt that we were not completely honored, appreciated, respected, nourished or loved by the other.
After having once experienced such a rewarding and fulfilling personal relationship I now realize that I could never compromise and settle for anything less in future relationships. So, in that respect she has inspired me to enjoying wonderful relationships with others.
There is not a day that goes by that I am not gently reminded by her to strive for higher levels of honesty and integrity in my personal and business life.
I am so happy and grateful for her continual love and support in my life.
My greatest wish for Linda is that she would have been able to take the gift of my love and the love and devotion of her daughter and family with her on to her next life experience. Perhaps, that is the real treasure that we carry with us through the countless adventures of our life times on this amazingly beautiful planet.
With all gratitude,
Larry "Arizona" Todt
