Best friends Linda Lowe (left) and Ann Gilman moved to Linden Ponds last June within a few days of one another.

Ann Gilman and Linda Lowe met while teaching in the Boston public school system more than 40 years ago and quickly formed a friendship. They only worked together for one year, but they stayed in touch and even went on to get their master’s degrees in special education together. Their friendship deepened over the years and has stood the test of time.
