Rest in Peace, Linda Escamilla

LindaPlease remember in your prayers our dear friend and co-worker here at Loyola Press, Linda Escamilla, who passed away today after a long illness. Linda served Loyola Press for 15 years in a number of capacities, all of which enabled her to tirelessly give of herself to others, making sure that everyone on staff had what they needed, from hot coffee to office supplies, to catered meals for important gatherings, to AA batteries that only she had a key to! She will be missed dearly. Here is a pic of Linda from our office All Saints celebration last Fall in which she dressed as Mary, our Mother, in whose presence she now lives in eternity.

Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her.
