Community members organized a GoFundMe to raise money for Linda's medical expenses as she fought to recover from her injuries.
The fund's organizer Debra Benner provided a status update for for the Lisa and Earle Holt, the Oyster's children.
"[Linda] will be sorely missed by all who knew her. Certainly our thoughts and prayers are with everyone who is touched by this loss. as friends, community members, and colleagues, we will continue to love and support the holt family in whatever [we] can," Benner said.
According to Heather Christine, former manager at the Mill Casino RV Park where the couple was attacked, they were regulars at the park, even though they were Florida residents. She went as far as to say the couple was like family to her and her staff.
"These two humans were genuinely two of the most beautiful, light-filled, loving, joyful people I've ever had the pleasure of crossing paths with, and there are countless others who would say the same thing," Christine said.
Prosecutors are still working on getting Nicholson extradited back to Oregon. His court date is set for later this month.
