Like so many, it saddened me to learn of Linda's passing. Truly her death leaves a hole in humanity's heart. She devoted her professional career in the service of children and families. As a social worker, she tried her best to protect children and help broken families heal. When healing was not possible, she did her best to reassure the children under her watch that she would see them safely to their new family.
To her family, never doubt for one moment, Linda made a difference to so many people that you may never meet. There is sadness today and mere words are of little comfort. However, as each of you continue to gather and begin this new reality, I so hope that you will also reflect on the beautiful legacy that she leaves and in doing so, begin to smile again.
