Linda believes that "giving back" to the community is an important part of every business.  For this reason she serves as Cleveland's area coordinator for the infant-bereavement organization "Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep" (click here to visit its home page).

When a call comes in, she (or one of her eight team members) heads for the hospital to provide photographs for a family that didn't expect something like this to happen.  In 2010 Linda personally did 60 NILMDTS sessions, and in 2011 it was 54 sessions -- a little more than one a week.

Why does she do all this?   Well, one reason is because it provides a heart-broken family something to remember their lost child with, something that the family would not otherwise have. Read how one family felt.

Nearly all the hospitals (and many hospices) in and around Cuyahoga County make use of NILMDTS;  Linda personally covers calls from as far west as Elyria Memorial and as far east as the Cleveland Clinic.

Although few people outside of those directly involved are aware of this work, it is not completely unknown in the Cleveland area.   A few years ago WKYC interviewed Linda and some bereaved parents about the service her team of volunteers provides, and aired their findings on the 11:00 nightly news.   (See what they said).

Finally, here's a video showing some of the images Linda has captured in her NILMDTS sessions.
