      Mrs. Guymon was not only an amazing teacher, she was also an amazing woman. I have nothing but respect for the way she taught, and have appreciated her presence in my life since I graduated. She was a very genuine, beautiful soul, and I am forever grateful for her love and support throughout my life.

    Ms. Guymon was one of my favorite teachers. I loved being in her class. She encouraged me to do things I was interested in. She spoke to all of us and helped us as though we were equal to her, not below. I admired that about her. Best wishes to her family!

    I’m so sorry to only just read of Linda’s passing.
    I hadn’t heard from her for some time so it’s quite a shock. Such a shame to die so young.
    Condolences to Ted, Megan, Dom & Mark.
    I first met Linda in 1976 when visiting a friend I’d met when travelling in Europe the year before.
    Linda welcomed me into her home with open arms & I wish I could have done likewise over here in Paterson, NSW, Australia.
    What a generous special person. Linda took me to see many of your beautiful National Parks on this visit & again in 1980.
    I took Mark for his baby vaccinations on my first visit as Linda had to work that day.
    We had corresponded over the years like pen friends then face book replaced snail mail except at Christmas.
    I will truely miss Linda very much
    Love to you all 💕
