I'm so sorry to hear of Linda's passing. She was a good high school friend and just a wonderful person. We graduated together (Class of 1971--Pottsville Area High School) and I just finished reading her posting to me in my yearbook. She will be missed by a lot of friends/class members. May God Bless her and her family during these trying times.

Words cannot express the shock and sympathy I feel. I just saw Lin on 3/11 when I took my dog to Animal Crackers. She loved chocolate so every time I came I brought her Hershey Kisses and we would talk. I called on 4/24 and got her message from 4/21 that she was still undergoing medical treatment. I called the house and no answer so I thought I would try the hospital on Tuesday, May 2nd and I see her Obituary Notice. I was dumbfounded. She was just so good with the animals and words cannot express how sad I feel and just can't believe it. I am going to miss her more than you know. Fly High Lin ! We will never forget you :(

I started my day yesterday with the deeply saddening news of the passing of Lynn. I met Lynn 2 years ago thru Patti Baez who cuts our hair. I was not happy with the groomer for my 2 year old Bichon named Bella, and Patti had recently purchased her dog Sadie. I asked Patti who would be taking care of Sadie and with happiness in her voice and a smile on her face she told me about Lynn. I immediately called Lynn when I returned home and made an appointment, that started our relationship that has ended way too soon. This morning I was overjoyed to see on FB someone has adopted her beautiful dogs and they will remain together, Lynn will be pleased. This past winter Lynn and I were talking about cooking and I told her I had a great spaghetti sauce recipe, she asked me to try some and I took her enough sauce and meatballs for several meals. It has truly been a pleasure knowing Lynn over the last 2 years and I will miss her and the fantastic job she did grooming my dog. My deepest sympathies to you and Lynn's family.

Sincerely, Bill Littleton

I wish I had known about her passing in time to attend the memorial service. Please accept my condolences to her family and friends. Lynn was a special person who was always so sweet to my dog, Pogo, and I. I am going to miss her terribly. RIP Sweet Lynn ... you will be in my heart forever.

Dear Rega family, I am so very sorry to hear of Lin's passing and devastated to have learned so late that I missed her memorial service. I only learned of her passing today when I was googling to find an alternate number to have our dog groomed. We have been with Lin for almost 20 years and she feels like family. I pray she is at peace and if there is anything I can help with, I hope someone will contact me. I am just so very sad. God Bless you all. She was a wonderful person and I will miss her greatly.

Jennifer Hadley and family
