I was Lynn's classmate and graduated from high school with her. We shared many exciting trips, holidays, and other get togethers throughout many years. She beamed brightly with a smile when she talked about her children and grandchildren. I am so sorry I was unable to see her very much these past 2 years. My condolences and prayers are with her family as they grieve her passing.
