I am sorry to hear about Linda--this is the first I knew about her passing.  She wrote one of the coolest Cro-Magnon Journal satires--called "Hamet's Dilemma."  She noted that "Oh that this too too sullied flesh might melt, thaw, and resolve itself into a dew" might mean that Hamet wished....that he wasn't pregnant.  I don't know of another contribution that I enjoyed more as editor.

I heard from Linda a few years ago.  Her father was sick, and she called me, knowing I was a doc.  It was not a situation that I could help....but in hearing the story from Linda, I heard all about the designs she and her dad had for gold mines (or maybe diamond mines) in Utah.  Big plans--amazing dreams.  Linda, and family, I miss you.  Rest in peace.
