A Message from Lyn For more than 40 years, Vera Lloyd has been a large part of my life and that of my family. Lyn Whaley, CEO Our two little boys loved climbing the big evergreen tree in the yard at 2200 Gaines Street, the home of Presbyterian Family Services. As teens they were models for photo shoots for Vera Lloyd print materials, since we weren’t allowed to use pictures of the residents. Now they are grown men with families of their own, and I will be retiring this year. Working for Vera Lloyd has been a labor of love. One of my greatest

joys has been the relationships developed with the wonderful people who support Vera Lloyd. Your sincere concern for hurting children and your appreciation for the work we do inspire the staff to work hard and strive for excellence. You have made my life richer, for having known each of you. I plan to see as many as I can this year, to thank you personally for your contributions to the progress we’ve made at Vera Lloyd. I know you will continue to be excited and involved in the life of this ministry, as Vera Lloyd moves forward with new leadership. Together we will pray that God’s perfect choice will be revealed to lead Vera Lloyd onward. Lyn Whaley CEO
