Linda's loss although expected, is a great shock to us all. Linda was a great person. To us she was a friend, a sister and PA (to Prof Mo Abu Hilal, one of our founders, at the Spire Hospital, Southampton, ) and a great partner. Her contribution to the charity work was based on her own choice and altruism. She was always able to understand other patients and feel very near to them in their pain, hopes, thoughts and feelings , hence her active involvement and giving of time and effort.
We will remember Linda all the great things she was and will celebrate her life at our forthcoming Annual curry night (www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/annual-curry-night-tickets-43866494867), which, had Linda still been with us, she would have certainly attended and filled the room with joy.
Linda's funeral will take place on Tuesday 27 March, 11am at St Nicholas Church, North Stoneham, Stoneham Lane, Southampton, SO50 9NW. The service will be followed by a wake at 12.30pm at The Concorde Club, Stoneham Lane, Southampton, SO50 9HQ. Family flowers only with donations, if wished, to Princess Mountbatten Hospice, C/o Jonathan Terry Funeral Directors, 3 College Place, London Road, Southampton, SO15 2FB www.jonathanterry.co.uk.
