    I am so sorry for the loss of Lynn , she was one of the Greatest women I ever had the pleasure of knowing. Whenever you would see her she had a smile on her face and even while she was dealing with her sickness I could hear the positive tone in her voice when I spoke with her several weeks ago. I know she leaves a hole in the heart of many but she is above us now healthy and walking thru the gates of Heaven with that smile
