Linsday was an inspiration to me ; illness detained me from attending her Memorial Service.
My God, she was beautiful in both inner and outer persons and spirit.
May Linsday live on in the lives of those who remember her selflessness and commitment to the enjoyment of others,

Rest in peace sweet Angel.

Everybody enjoyed reading Lindsay's pieces and were shocked when she passed away....one question to whoever is organizing this this, as Lindsay's life was supposedly taken by her husband, why would they put the award using the husbands surname? Surely out of respect for Lindsay it should be in her maiden name, not in the name of the person that took her life? Just a thought....the idea is fantastic though

Good point. I will mention this to the publisher, but I expect the answer will be that this is the name she is known by, and under which her books were published. They might be advised to consult with her family.

any current news about the husband and son? Probably not much happening with the case because of pandemic
