    Thanks for sharing these photos. I can see Chloe’s hand in choosing which ones to use. “Lina 1974” … beauty, fire, and determination. All three carried through till her parting.

    Craig, Chole and Moriah,

    Thank you for sharing these wonderful photos of all of you. I keep thinking about one of the great verses Lina shared with me by Henry Drummond.

    “You will find as you look back upon your life that the moments when you have truly lived are the moments when you have done things in the spirit of love.”

    I never had the pleasure of meeting Lina, but my sister Mary Carey spoke so highly of her on a regular basis. I have read her lovely obituary and am simply amazed by this gracious woman I never had the opportunity to meet. She and her family are in our prayers. She accomplished so much in so little time.

    God Bless

    I knew Lina in her younger days – Riverdale High School- so it was wonderful to see those old pictures. The last time I saw Lina was when she and Bert stayed with me in New Orleans on their way to Belize. It’s hard to believe it was 1983. I have followed her life through her friendship with my sister, Eileen. I am so sorry and sad. M

    Dear Craig,
    Not a day goes by………..
    Losses like this are perplexing. I think about the three of you every day. I wish i had the magic wand……and as time goes by and the world returns to it’s “normalcy” it is challenging. I send u love, claire

    Dear Chloe, Mariah, and Craig,
    I always admired Lina for her independent spirit and her many talents. Miles and I knew her through our cherished relationship with John and Charlotte. She will be missed in so many ways by so many people. Thank you for letting us know. Luanna

    The ballerina is the only one I can’t quite connect “my Lina” with! What a lovely woman…

    I knew Lina back in the day, and we exchanged sporadic letters over the years and kept up with each other’s work and lives. She was special. I will look for photos when I am back home, and send. Her life was full with much to celebrate, because she made it so.

    Thank you Craig and family for these touching photos and for sharing both Lina’s and Bert’s stories on the commondreams website. I never has the pleasure of meeting Lina but she seemed to have lived a loving and full productive life, how many people can say that? So sorry for your loss.

    Thank you for commondreams and for reminding everyone to keep the dream alive. Another world is possible.

    A lovely lady and legacy. I came across the story of Lina while looking through Sibel Edmonds story and wandered here through Common Dreams…Bless her and all of the women of progress and change! Mary, Redding, CA.

    I am a late comer to Commom Dreams however, I work part time in the Canadian Military and wanted to know what an inspiration for the truth that Lina has been in my life. I am very joyed to see her photos as they bring each of us closer in our own realities and how we truely effect each other.
    I am adding Common Dreams website as part of our unit situational global awareness.
    Thank-you for this living legacy and it’s important work of bringing the truth to light.
