Oh my. I was wondering where she was at Solvang too.
I remember 1st meeting Linda. It was at Peter's house, pulling his engine, and Linda was there helping too with her lil' white car.

We always talked at Solvang, and we chatted in PMs here once in a while too.

I never expected her to go so early. All the information I'll never get out of her.
Linda will be truly missed.

Wow, this is shocking! Linda was truly one of a kind. From getting the ball joints remanufactured to keeping us in line she was a class act. I too got unsolicited PM’s from here giving advice on getting people together for events or keeping peace amongst the members. We are certainly less without her.

Wow, at a loss for words. (and Peter knows that is a rare event)
As some have said, “she made us better”, hope all roads are twisty with the great grin we see in the pic in Spriso’s post.
She took a lot of flak for “sourcing ball joints as a medical professional”, and laughed it off.
She and I also had several talks (ok, her talking, me listening) along the lines of “Men are so reluctant to admit something doesn’t feel right, go see a doctor until 6 weeks later. You can be one of them or decide your are not, and act accordingly.”
‘Nuff said, She made an indelible difference.
God bless.

Always helpful, on the board and behind the scenes. A real loss to the community, as well as family.

Even though we've never meet and lived on opposite coasts, I feel as though I could sense your caring nature and helpfulness through all of your posts that I read. It is a sad day indeed when we lose a kind, caring person far too soon. RIP Linda Jordan, may your last ride be your best.

We texted just shortly in anticipation of the Solvang show. We expected to see here at Lake Cachuma where we have camped for several Shows. Felt something was up when no show. Always a giver and willing to help! RIP Linda.

Wow, I last saw her a Supercar Sunday a couple months back. Had the typical hour long conversation about cars and other things. I never could have fathomed that would be our last conversation. Tomorrow is a promise to no man (or woman). Drive in peace Linda. You shall be missed.

I must admit I had tears in my eyes when I read this. We had talked by phone about cars and health. I helped her with some wiring issues and neither of us seemed to be able end a conversation.

Such a shame.
