In Memory of Linda, our mentor and friend

Linda Houghton was a magnificant woman of wisdom and grace. She mentored us at Ohana House and taught us to live in pure honesty, fierce loyalty, and compassion for one another. She modeled self-respect and courage. Linda never failed to try new things and was constantly studying different ways to improve. Even at her age, ahe was not afraid to change.

Linda Lou, you have taught us more than words can say. We miss you and love you dearly.

The messages below are some of the notes written by Linda's loved ones. These were hung on the weeping birch tree planted during Linda's celebration of her life.
