My name is Linda Mack, and I am Amanda Hood’s mother. I just wanted to thank you for your article highlighting domestic violence. I hope that at least it can save just one person from the terrible fate that ended my one and only daughter’s life.
All I can do for her now is to fight for justice for her. I miss her terribly. Please if anyone is reading this letter and you have a loved one in a domestic violent situation, never stop encouraging them to get out. She always told me in her own words, “He will never hit me Mother.” And promised me if it ever got to that point she would leave. But in the end far as I know he never hit her but he senselessly and violently took her life. Domestic violence comes in many forms. Thank you.
