Bishop Geoffrey wrote in a message to the parish of Costa del Sol East:
"...[Lindy] rejoiced in the fulfilment of her calling to the ordained ministry, which has sadly been so short. We remember with thanksgiving her many gifts of mind and heart, and I recall personally her capacity to read the Scriptures, as she did at the Cologne Clergy Conference last September, in a way which drew out meaning and touched and challenged us".The Revd Ulla Monberg, the diocesan Director of Training, wrote to Lindy's colleagues in our Post Ordination Training Course:
"I am aware that for those of you who trained with Lindy at ERMC this is particularly devastating news. The one comforting thought that came to mind as I heard of her death was that the call to ordination and to serve God’s Church was a life-long aspiration for Lindy, and in the very last part of her life she was to see this desire come to fruition as she was ordained Deacon last year. She joined the Post Ordination Training group for the first time in November and wrote to me just eight days ago that she hoped to be fully recovered from surgery by the next POT in May. Lindy was a much valued member of the Chaplaincy of Costa Del Sol East where she served her curacy and she was to have been ordained priest this coming Petertide".
Plans for Lindy's funeral are not yet finalised, but it is likely to be on Thursday or Friday this week, in Fuengirola, Spain. A memorial service is planned for 9 April in St Andrew's, Costa del Sol East. One may be held also in England. We join in prayer for Archdeacon David Sutch and for the people of Costa del Sol East, whom Lindy loved and served. And we commend Lindy into the loving embrace of Almighty God. May she rest in peace and rise in glory.
