My husband, David and I are so very sorry to hear of Linette's passing. My husband worked with her at Sandstone and she and I met during Associate Wardens training. That trip was bearable because of Linette. She was fun, hard working, dedicated and loved her family. My husband respected Linette and enjoyed working with her. She was a great leader and friend. We are so very sorry for your loss.
