Lindor Reynolds' touching words
Re: Thanks for letting me into your lives (Aug. 16). What terrible news. Lindor is special. Her writing has a gentle, wise touch. Have been thinking of her. Thank you, Lindor.
Lindor, you have always been one of my favourite columnists. You've always written from the heart, and even though we've never met, you touched my heart.
You say your readers have been the greatest gift. I know I speak for so many others, but we feel the same way about you.
My prayers are with you and your family.
For many years, I felt I was sharing part of Lindor's life. Thank you for being a wonderful journalist. There will never be another Lindor Reynolds.
Thank you Lindor. Your openness on this oft-taboo topic has certainly given many of your readers (including me) an insightful view from the front row.
I absolutely love your comment about "choosing your friends carefully."
Thank you for letting us into to your life, too.

I have fond memories of our past friendship, of chocolate, wine and conversation deep into the night about how to change the world and to make it a better place.
And you know what? You did make it a better place, and you're leaving a beautiful, sustaining legacy through your work and relationships.
Big (gentle) hug,
"I've discovered how insanely insecure I am, how much affirmation I need."
Lindor, I always thought you were one of us. Be assured that you are providing an opportunity for us to manifest compassion, and we are better for it. Thank you for sharing your vulnerability and know that beyond your friends there are people you have influenced.
Thank you, Lindor. I have enjoyed reading the writing you've done over the years and following the adventures you've had. Bless you.

"The ones who'll be wiping the drool off your chin." I love this comment; it reminds me of my dad's passing, Lindor. It was an honour to wipe that drool. Thank you for reminding me of that. God bless you and your family.
