Dear Friends and Colleagues,

We are deeply saddened by the loss of our dear, beloved friend and colleague, Dr. Linda Ann Kunz, on December 21, 2009.  As a small group of friends mourning our personal loss, as well as the loss to our profession, we are gathering together people from all aspects of Linda's life in a

Right up until her last moments, Linda lived large, doing what she always loved.  She was a great teacher and one of the most alive, interesting, diverse people anyone could ever hope to meet.  If you have any anecdotes and memories of Linda--they can be professional, touching, or funny, or even photographs--please send them to Brent Buell at buell28@aol.com.  

A number of you have already asked about contributions.  To cover the expenses of this Memorial and to make contributions to Linda's favorite charities* TEAA (Teachers for East Africa) and ACCES (African Canadian Continuing Education Society), we have established the "Linda Kunz Memorial Fund."  We would appreciate it if you could make a one-time contribution before April 10, 2010.
