Condolences from Iran.
I was 12 when the TV series were broadcast here in Iran. Among the tough guys in the series and in the harsh and dry atmosphere of the setting, to me, she was all love, tenderness and beauty and I do believe that all these were a reflection of her own real personality. God bless her.

El día sábado quise saber como estaría la, tan querida Linda vi su imagen, como se encontraba en la ahora sonriente cabello corto, ella estuvo en nuestra memoria que lleno nuestros jóvenes corazones tenía 12 años cuando en Perú los veíamos en EL GRAN CHAPARRAL
Lamento su partida.
