I am terribly saddened to hear about Lynn’s passing. She was a very sweet person and I am thankful for knowing her. Lynn was a courageous person in dealing with any obstacles, while always keeping a hopeful outlook. She was very devoted to helping others and generous with her time in this regard. She had a very infectious smile and was always pleasant to be around.
My thoughts and prayers go out to Larry and all of Lynn’s family. I will see you at the visitation. Kev Smith
