After being raised in the Bronx, Linda settled upstate with David where she enjoyed the country life, cooking and raising her two daughters in their beautiful home. Although she left the Bronx, her passion for the Yankees remained strong, however her taste in music turned country and there was always music on in the house. She enjoyed traveling with family and some of her favorite destinations were, Outer Banks NC, East Tennessee, Athens Greece, France, Lisbon Portugal, and Barcelona Spain. She especially loved the Amalfi Coast and walking the streets of Rome, Italy where she loved gazing at Trevi Fountain. Above all else she “loved those grandkids” and even in her final days found ways to enjoy spending time with them.
