My thoughts are with the Tucker family during this difficult time. Linda was a kind and gentle woman. I got to know her at Sheridan Road School when I had her grandson, Jacob, in my 5th grade class. I will miss seeing pictures of her beautiful flowers and chatting with her on FB!

Dearest Linda, thank you for being my wonderful, dear friend. I’m going to miss you terribly. You always had time to listen and help me through difficult times. You made me laugh all the time, too. We became friends on the ADHD site 20 years ago. Love you, girlfriend.

Linda, I’m going to miss our small talks, your great humor and our mutual love for cats. It was always my wish to actually meet you in person and am now heart broken that it never happened. I will keep your family in my prayers. May you RIP my sweet friend.

Linda I am so so sad you have left us but may you RIP. We became friends on the adhd support site back in the early 00’s and went on to jointly administrate that amazing site along with our fabulous moderators. Since then our friendship has continued on Facebook and your bright and uplifting good morning messages have become part of life and will be SO missed now. Sleep well.

My prayers go out to Linda’s family. I’ve known Linda most of my life. I will miss your lovely posts and your humor. You always responded with grace in the face of adversity, but as a true Italian you took no BS. I know you touched the lives of so many kids both at Gier and Sheridan road. Including my own daughter. You will be missed. RIH

My name is Amy Busby (Tucker). I am Paul and Linda’s oldest grandchild. I had such a close bond with grandma. When we would travel to Michigan from Tennessee every year I always enjoyed spending time with her. I remember staying up late with her watching tv just laughing and talking. I could talk to her about anything. We were very close and very much alike in many ways. I think about her and miss her every single day.
