Ms. Scher Linda came into my life and career and left an indelible mark that will be with me for the rest of my life. She is one of the best patients every nurse wishes to have in our very busy routine.

I’ve only been in contact with her a few months but it felt like l’ve known her all my life .Her smile, her company, and her words of wisdom.

Am glad however that she’s in a better place so peaceful with no pain nor sorrow. Am also glad that she spent her last hours surrounded by her loving family .

Adieu Ms . Cher. It’s me Blessing - Your Favorite Nurse. I love you and will miss you forever.

At the end of September each year I would look forward to a call from Linda's father Joe, asking me to arrange for a flower delivery for Linda's October 1st birthday. It was a lovely assignment to choose flowers for her, and a wonderful way to know her through special family occasions.
I was fortunate to meet Linda and her daughter Amy twice; at her niece Ali's Bat Mitzvah and at her dad's Memorial Service. I was very happy for these opportunities, and so appreciative of the wonderful family she came from, and the beautiful family she nurtured as her own. Heavenly blessings upon her always....

Our condolences from the Bonner family. Linda was a friendly neighbor. She used to tutor me as a child. She was very patient and kind and I’ll always remember her funny laugh.
