I admire and respect Lynda and the work she does. Many of her hours are spent giving back to the people not just with the United States but across the world. I live in Australia and the work she does has transformed the way l look at grief and how l carry myself through difficult periods in my life. She is a statesman, a leader, to be admired. — Carmela
Linda has been creating blogs to help people deal with grief and loss since she experienced it herself. She has taken the topic of talking about grief and loss, which many suffer silently and alone, and gave us all a way to handle being either one who is suffering loss or one who is helping someone who is dealing with a loss. It's unprecedented. — Ann
