I was so sad to lose my dear friend Linn Mills in 2014. I still think of him often. He made a great difference in my life, was my biggest cheerleader as we worked together daily for more than six years. The day I started work at Las Vegas Valley Water District in March 1998, I met Linn, though I knew of him and had seen him with my Dad at our home years before.
Linn knew my parents, and he knew I had a degree from BYU. Knowing only that about me, he immediately assumed I was the greatest thing since sliced bread. And so I tried to be.
