ROACH, Linda Ann - Would like to let you know that her work here is now done and on July 13, 2018 she relocated to a place allowing her to visit old family & friends, to read an unlimited number of hardcover books, to look after complex flower gardens, and to adopt an infinite number of puppies. 

Linda refused to let her short battle with lung cancer get the best of her – and took the time to reacquaint her kids to:  the art of British Cuisine (the odd Pub visit may have been involved), the fierce competition of Scrabble, Cribbage & Yahtzee, and – of course – the cultural importance watching reruns of old British sitcoms.
