My condolences go to the Parker family. Linda will truly be missed. I've worked with Linda over the last 7 years as the Director of Horizons for Homeless Children. Linda brought wonderful positive energy into the Playspace at the shelter she so kindly volunteered time at each week, rarely missing a chance to play. Her presence and enthusiasm will be missed, she is irreplaceable. Best wishes from all of us at Horizons, especially the children she helped each week.

It is incomprehensible to imagine the world without Linda in it. I know she would want us to continue without her and make the best of life. She did; every day she added to someone else's life with her presence, kindness, and understanding. The world needed more Linda Parkers.
With love, Amy
