  1. To my amazing friend Lynda I cheers to you today and forever to your love of life and ever lasting enjoyment of amazing food, friendship & fabulous cocktail nights. You will always hold a special part in my heart and I love & miss you dearly.
    Til we meet again XOX

  2. Thank you for the beautiful farewell for Lynda.
    She was such a unique and special person and will be long remembered.
    She made me laugh and laugh, even when we were running aggression management training together – she could have made anything funny. Her kindness to me when I was diagnosed with breast cancer was so helpful. Her practical tips and listening ear were just another example of her always helping others even when struggling herself. A great loss.

  3. Dear Deb, Rod and all Lynda’s close friends and family,
    Thank you so much for sharing this morning’s beautiful tribute and celebration of Lynda’s life with her broader network. I laughed, I cried and I smiled as I reflected on the incredible woman Lynda was and the joy and warmth that she so freely gave to others. Lynda was a FCS superstar, and her FCS colleagues will miss her terribly. My heart goes out to you all during this difficult time xx

  4. Thank you Deb and Rod for inviting us to the ceremony today, it was lovely. Lynda was such an amazing person who touched so many people’s lives. She will always be with me and I feel incredibly lucky to have known her.
    Take good care,
    Kristen

  5. Dear Debbie, Rod, Helen, and Bob,
    Thank you for streaming the service, so I (and others) good be a part of it. It meant so much to me to be able to join with you in celebrating Lynda, seeing moments of her life, and sharing tears with you over the loss of your dear sister and a treasured friend. It is evident that Lynda’s earthly presence will be missed by many, but she has left behind a deep impression and warm memories that will last forever in my life (and I see in many other lives as well). As I continue to picture her bright smile and great energy, I will also continue to think of you.
    Love,
    Joni

  6. Dear Debbie and family

    Thank you for allowing us to attend Lynda’s funeral: such a very lovely service. I am so sorry for your loss. Lynda was such a beautiful spirit and will be so missed. I will carry her wisdom, friendship and laughter in my memories.
    my condolences

  7. Dear Lynda’s family,

    My condolences and thank you for inviting me and for being able to participate in the funeral.

    I was fortunate enough to have worked with Lynda as a colleague FCS and roommate at the Alfred. We made our “new” office a nice workplace with many pictures on the wall, the Christmas and Easter tree, after-work drinks and a dresser full of shoes. She kept on supporting me with my studies (even after leaving our cosy office), understood family responsibilities, shared my love for the restaurant tram and was a great mentor. The toy she bought for our little one and handed to me over a Charcuterie board is still one of his favourites and not far away from his bed.

    When you share a room for a while you share a lot of stories, so I was fortunate enough to have heard some of the stories shared today and her laugh first hand.

    She will be missed.

    Wishing you all the best.

    Erik.

  8. Dear Deb, Rod and family.
    I worked with Lynda in Vancouver at the Vancouver Provincial courthouse. She was a kind and gentle soul. The forensics office was right across the hall from The Native Courtworker and Counselling Association of BC, the office I worked in. This is where we became good friends. She was well educated and helped me to apply to the Master of social work by editing my introduction letter.
    At the end of June this year my hometown of Lytton BC had burned down. Although she was having her own struggles she let me know that she would make a donation to support the people of Lytton. To honour my good friend Lynda, I will make a contribution and donate to her favorite charity.
    I will always treasure the silk tie/cuff links/pocket square set she had made for me when she was in Asia; moreover, I will treasure the memories we made at the BC Lions games, her improve, the Betty White show we attended, the celebrations she attended of mine and of course the awesome parties she hosted. My heart is heavy but glad that I knew this awesome lady.
    Kind thoughts and tons of positive vibes to you.

  9. Dear Deb, Rod and family,

    I really appreciate being able to virtually attend Lynda’s celebration of life today. Being able to share in the moment with you and all Lynda’s friends all over the world was really meaningful to me. i know how much she loved you all because she didn’t hesitate to say so.

    It’s so weird trying to grasp that she’s not going to be chatting with me over text or video anymore, talking out all kinds of stuff and laughing our butts off. No more exchanging hilarious videos or bands and comedians to check out, no meeting up at a language school in Spain 2022.

    She always approached challenges head on, and squeezed as much juice out of life as she could. i’m going to do my best to honour that adventurous spirit.

    I’m so glad I got to meet you in 2020. live and comfort to you,

    Benita

  10. Dear Deb, Rod and family,

    Thank you for this beautiful celebration of Lynda’s life. Deb, thank you for you poem, I too would love to share in Lynda’s optimistic and bright outlook but for right now I am broken and miss my friend. I am so sorry for your loss and the space she leaves behind. I am sending love, light and gratitude for all Lynda added to the my life/this world. M

    Will much love Noëlx

  11. Dear Debbie, Rod and family,

    What a wonderful service, so many wonderful memories that captured Lynda’s spirit and joie de vivre beautifully. She was a loyal and true friend, champion of the underdog and lover of life. A true inspiration always. Sending you my thoughts and prayers.

    Sharon

  12. Dear Debbie, Rod and Family,

    Thank you so much for creating such a beautiful final send off for Lynda, what a joy it was to see so many photographs and hear so many memories.
    What a full and enriching life she did lead in the years that she had.
    I also wanted to reiterate what others have said about Lynda and the contribution to social work she made at The Alfred. Having Lynda join our team in 2013 created a sense of strength, care and tenancity in the Adult Social Work team. She had the intelligence and wit to hold her own and always promoted the human story rather than the diagnosis.
    I felt very honoured to have Lynda supervise me, lots of laughs weaved into so much practice wisdom. Such a huge loss for us all.

    I wish you all so much love on your journey ahead.
    Kindest Regards
    Karen Barnett (Alfred SW)

  13. Dearest Deb, Rod and family,

    Thank you for a beautifully warm tribute to Lynda, who was most certainly loved by all. Deb, I loved your poem and as much as I would love to share in Lynda’s bright optimistic spirit, I am broken and sorely/selfishly miss my friend. I am SO sorry for your loss and the space she leaves behind. Ted Lasso will bring joy & pain but will forever make me smile thinking about Lynda and you watching/enjoying it. Sending love and light to all you during this time x!

    Noël

  14. Dear Debbie, Rod & Family,

    We are so sorry for your loss and hope you can find some comfort in the memories of the times and adventures you shared with Lynda.

    The service was a beautiful tribute to an incredible person that lived life to the fullest.

    With love
    Mike and Kivelly

  15. What a wonderful, interesting life! Fabulous service for a fabulous person. She will be missed. Love to you all. Love Jo xx

  16. I was so glad to be able to share by the video link in the final farewells to Lynda. The many tributes brought out how well lived her life had been and how much her talent for friendship had meant to so many people. She seems to have manged more joy of living in relatively fewer years than many of us manage in longer spans.
    May she rest in peace.

  17. My condolences to Lynda’s family and my thanks to you for sharing her funeral. I’m just another admirer and FCS colleague from RMH that wanted to be a part of farewelling an awesome woman.
    Thank-you and best wishes,
    Fleur

  18. Dear Deb, Rod, family and friends of Lynda

    It was wonderful to hear so much more about Lynda’s life, the people she touched and the amazing qualities she brought to all that she did.

    I only shared a very small part of that journey but her loss is still strongly felt.

    A beautiful tribute.

    Much love
    Brett

  19. What a beautiful service. It was such a perfect portrait of who Lynda was. I will miss her terribly. We really are so much better for having her in our lives.

  20. As a former co-worker and friend in Vancouver, I cant possibly add anymore superlatives to honour Lynda’s memory than what were expressed at the service. I will share, however, a recollection of one particular Christmas office party that, following the dinner progressed with the hearty-partiers to a pub, where Lynda and I sat beside each other and engaged in an hilarious banter that ensued with gut-wrenching laughter for both of us for a solid 15 or 20 minutes or so . No clue what was so funny, but certainly the occasion is highly memorable. Take care Deb, Rod, Helen, and all Lynda’s friends.

  21. Dear Deb, Rod and family,

  22. Such a beautiful friend and wonderful colleague – someone that I respected and will always remember as a wonderful mentor. Such a beautiful soul that will be missed. There will be a special secret santa this year just for you. xx

  23. Dear Jordan family,
    When I first started at the Alfred almost five years ago Lynda was incredibly kind and welcoming to the shy newcomer that I was. I will always remember Lynda for her big warm smile, authenticity, approachability, and love of conversation around all things food and wine.
    I am very sad to hear that she has passed. She was a very kind and intelligent woman.
    My condolences.
    She will be missed.

  24. Dear Deb and Rod and family,

    What a beautiful service and the most amazing tribute to such a special woman. So happy to have known her and so sad she is no longer with us.

    Sending you all so much love

  27. To the Jordan family…

    I was saddened to hear of Lynda’s passing. I have nothing but the best memories of Lynda and our group of friends from Calvary Baptist church in Oakville. We had a lot of fun times and spent a lot of time together. I have thought of her often, wondering how she was doing. I pray that God will provide you with a peace that passes all understanding as we remember her. Blessings on you.

  28. Much love from her friends from the west coast of Canada. Lynda was a deeply caring and adventurous spirit who lived her life well.

    We had many memorable adventures with her travelling and enjoying fine food and drink.

    We’ll miss her, but will honour her spirit.

    Michael & Yvonne (Victoria, BC)

    We will always remember our time in Melbourne and the hospitality she showed us.
    We miss her smile and good nature.
    Love, David & Pauline

  30. Dear Deb, Rod and family,

    I am so very sorry for your loss. I miss her terribly. She was the best and dearest friend anyone could ever hope for. I was so lucky to have her as a friend and am so grateful to have known her.

    With love,

    Anna, Chris, Emma & Thomas.

  31. Dear Deb, Rod and family,
    Lynda’s passing has hit everyone very hard….even though we knew it was coming!

    She was such a dear friend to our daughter Anna and to our family. The dinners with her were always such a fun-filled time mainly because of Lynda. Such a bright light !

    I’m sure she is sitting back, with a glass of wine, having a good laugh at us all now.

    We love and miss her

    Yve and Geoff
