Dear Jerry, Jay, Jennifer: I am so sorry to hear of your loss of Linda. She was totally devoted to you, her precious family. I had the privilege to work by her side for 12 of the 30 years she served at Parent and Child. She was a star - one of the smartest and most creative, hardworking, compassionate persons imaginable. Her willingness to go the second mile to help others, especially those in great need, was unsurpassed. I am grateful to have been her colleague and friend. My heart joins yours in sadness for her loss.
