When something in my facebook feed is simultaneously insightful, amusing and relevant to easing the suffering in this world, it's very - almost suspiciously - often there because Linda liked, commented or shared it. In that way, she contributes on a daily basis to the social and emotional awareness of a person who has never even met her in real life, and I'm sure I'm not the only one who is positively affected by her in this, and many other, ways. Personally I always feel weird and intimidated when people I know online start getting closer to my real life, but I'm certain I would be very lucky to one day actually meet her in person.
She also gives a lot to this community by sharing her (always good, often brilliant) writing with (and about) us; by co-organising Big Brother; and by saying all of the good things she has to add to the conversation on this site.
You have touched so many people in so many ways, I don't know what we'll do without you. Growing up on the forums you were one of the quasi-parents that nurtured me (and a whole generation of 667ers), pushing us to think in new ways, always from a compassionate viewpoint. You did so much for other people, shining on the rest of us like a star, thank you Linda. You'll be sorely missed ♡
I love your video so so much! Mine for the 14th is also a YouTube video, but more Christmasy and less Snickety and labor-intensive than yours, and I'm going to post it early because I'm at that stage where my brain thinks it's literal garbage (and maybe it is? Idk) and wants to delete the video so I figure I'd better get it posted before that happens since I don't have a backup. It's the 14th in most of the world by now anyway. So this is me singing the First Noel while shakily filming my cat, who happens to be named Noel. Get it, puns? Idk just roll with it.
To add to Bandit's post, here is one of my favourite Linda moments. (For those who don't know the context, we were doing an 'impersonate a 667er' day as part of the anniversary celebrations, and these posts were originally made in character as Pandora.)

Jean Lúcio: You must use @ before the person's username.
