Dear Elsa - Thinking of you. - LCB

*** Posted by Laura Ballinger Fox on 2011-09-10 ***

You are still in my heart. I will miss you always.

In the 10 years since I lost a beloved colleague, I think of Linda often... and wonder how her dog and garden are doing. She spoke of them both often and with love. It speaks to the compassionate, creative and loving person that she was.

Linda's path and mine crossed first in the summer of '69 when we were both 16. It was a great summer, and even then it was clear that she was intense, directed, and bound for big things. But she also had a big heart. We kept in touch over many years. I remember her Aardvark that she and her dad put together, and her family's immense cat. I remember being surprised (and a little disappointed) that she decided to go to South Hampton College, but she managed to make that work, too. The bottom line is that it's not fair that people like Linda should be taken the way she did. I guess that goes without saying. Nonetheless, I remain immensely angry about it, and sad. Godspeed, Linda. I will always remember you. You made a big impression on my life.

I knew Linda in law school. She was smart, opinionated, and conservative, but not extreme. We frequently talked, and I found her to be an engaging, intelligent person.

Linda was my cousin. I used to visit in the summers when I was younger and spend time with her, her sister Elsa and my Tante Doris. I miss Linda's strength, determination and laugh. I believe she is with me and proud of her cousin even though my successes have happened after her passing. She is loved and missed.....

Love, Lois

Linda lived across the street from my family and I when we still lived in GWL. Linda helped me through a lot of hard times when my parents divorced. I spent countless amounts of time with her: From helping build her beautiful raised rock bed gardens in the back yard to making cinnabuns or just watching TV. On nice Sunday afternoons we would drive around with the top down on the Z3 before she bought hers. When I talk about her now, I call her my second mom because that's who she was to me. I will never forgot how I felt when I heard she was on flight 93. I will never forget her and all the strength she gave me when I was younger. Now Linda is my guardian angel. She was with me when I crashed into the snow on the NJ Turnpike. She kept me safe. It hurts every day thinking about how my now 18-month-old son won't get to meet her. She was such a wonderful, loving, kind person, and she always took care of me. I know everyone has their stories and memories of Linda. I just wanted to share mine because she was and still is so special to me.

You will forever be missed!  xoxo

Although I didn't know Linda personally, I do know her sister, Elsa. I wanted to write this so that Elsa and her mother would know that people still think of Linda and her sacrifice on that awful day. We will never forget.

Linda was my big cousin, and my heart and prayers go out to my family whom I haven't seen in a long time. Tonta Doris or cousin Elsa, if your reading this, please contact me. My dad, Clifford Iversen, is heartbroken and would like for you to get in touch. We love you; god bless you. (845)787-5333.

I had the honor of working with Linda over several years on two major projects for the Society of Automotive Engineers. All of the things that are said about her now, though extremely impressive, barely touch the surface of the intelligent, dedicated, strong, and courageous woman I was lucky enough to know, both on a professional and personal level. I also have a personal story to add to this webpage.

My eleven-year-old granddaughter spent the past weekend with me. Somehow, the subject of 9/11 came up, and, since she was only four years old when it happened, I spent some time talking to her about how that day affected our country. Naturally, I told her about Linda and Flight 93. The next day, just by chance, I came across a cable movie channel that was showing "United 93." My granddaughter watched the movie with me. Today, she called to tell me that she has a school assignment where she has to give a speech later this week on a person that she admires. She has chosen to give the speech on Linda.

I am so happy and proud that my granddaughter has found a way to honor Linda. Many years have passed since that tragic day, but I hope Linda's family realizes that she touched the hearts of so many people, and continues to do so, even now.

Linda was my aunt. Although I didn't see her much, nor know her very well because she lived so far away, I still know enough about her to know how wonderful of a person she truly was, and this whole family misses her dearly.

I was Linda's neighbor in Greenwood Lake. She was a great person and missed a lot. If I could wish for one thing for the rest of my life, it would be that she could come back.

While cleaning out some files, I found Linda's BMW business card and remembered that I heard she was a 9/11 victim.  Enjoyed meeting her and working with her on a project involving BMW's port facility in California.

Linda was the consummate professional in everything she did , she was a friend for over 25 years .we met on a corner at lime rock as two flaggers + EMT's and over the years every-time our paths crossed it was just an exciting and fun day at the races. She was a member of our large SCCA family.          Linda may peace find you !  Ed Sparks

You meant the world to your family and friends. May God keep you in the palm of his hand.

On September 11th 2003 a memorial for the victims of 9-11 was held in Lubbock Texas. At that memorial there was an American flag placed for each person that had lost their life on that terrible day 2 years before. The following Saturday those flags were sold to the public as a fund raiser and my mother bought the flag that had been placed in memory of Linda Gronlund. I just wanted the family and friends of Linda Gronland to know that even though we never knew her our hearts go out to you and that her memory lives on in a place that I'm sure some of you never heard of before.

Share your feelings and memories of grief and sadness concerning the 9-11-2001 attack, or of positive memories.  If you knew this person, help us to build a small 'bio' of the person and share with us something about his/her life:

  • what kind of person he/she was, 
  • what nice points you remember about him/her, 
  • what kind of relationship you had with him/her, 
  • what you two perhaps did together, 
  • what he/she meant to you, 
  • or other things about him/her might be especially encouraging for other people.

This web site is intended solely as a means of allowing all of us to express our grief and sympathy in behalf of the people who lost their lives, and also our love and compassion towards those who lost loved ones and friends in the 9/11/01 tragedy.

Our hearts are very touched with concern in behalf of those people, and it is to them that we dedicate this web site. It is not our intent to venture into the realms of WHO should face judgement, to take responsibility for those terrible events, because we have no way of knowing for sure who all might fall into that category. Therefore, any letters or notes written passing judgment upon any person or group will not be published on this site. We do NOT want this site to be a base for expressions of hatred, but only for expressions of LOVE!
