I received an email today from my photography mentor and long-time family friend, Grant Oakes. Today is the day his wife Linda lost her long fight with cancer. When I think of Linda, I think of her thoughtfulness, her wisdom, and her endurance. She was always taking care of others and putting others ahead of herself. She would console and encourage me whenever I was sick, and I would cry because I knew her battles were rougher than mine, and yet she was the one checking on me. Loved by many, she is already very missed.
