RIP: Linda Smith

British comedian, radio host and TV panelist extraordinaire, Linda Smith, passes at the age of 48.

“She was a very proud woman and she hated the cancer. It annoyed her because she loved life. She wanted to live. I think she thought that by talking about the cancer she was giving it a platform that she didn’t think it deserved.”

Rest well, Linda.
