All of us at News Channel 3 have lost a good friend after she lost a long and courageous battle with cancer. Linda Gaston played an important part at KESQ since she joined us in 1998. As our Community Affairs Director she kept us in touch with the many charities and other organizations in the Coachella Valley. As our Receptionist she was the first voice you heard on the phone or the person who greeted you at our door... always with a smile. We shared Linda's battle with cancer with you back in 2006. She fought long and strong. Ultimately cancer proved stronger. Our thoughts are with Linda's husband Walt, and the rest of her family. Linda you will be missed.
