Lynette deals with big life changing events such as death, divorce, and changes itself! A lot of times adults believe they are shielding these difficulties from youth and children!. However, they see and hear these issues! A great lesson that we can learn from Lynette is that service helps to build up a network of support systems and can heal us. Focusing on and caring for others heals our inner troubles……Fern Havea
