Mastering any task she had, especially cooking. Linda has always wanted to master Moroccan style dishes and mastered it, she did. Along with her perfected Puerto Rican and Italian dishes, she even mastered new recipes and all she wanted in return was to know “How was it?”. She could do it all, be a mother and a best friend all in one, as well as a wife and a life long friend. She was the greatest mom to her dog Bentley. Her children knew they could always come to her for honest advice, and as their biggest support system. No matter who you are, Linda was known for making you feel at home.
