We are sad to learn of the passing of Linda Carbajal of Ft. Collins. Linda came to Nicki's Circle Central several times with her friend Vivian Greigo, also of Ft. Collins. Linda worked in the College of Education at The University of Northern Colorado in Greeley from 2003-2013 as Director of the Cumbres Program. She will be missed by family and colleagues alike.
We will remember Linda with love.
