Sorry to hear of Lynn’s passing. I hadn’t seen her since the Class of 72 reunion about 10 yrs. ago, but we had a great time talking about the past.

I remember when Lynn tied a rope around my brothers chest and hung him off of the 2nd story of our house, unfortunately he decended past the living room window where our Dad was watching TV. They were planning on going up to the Shell station to get a soda. Dad ran out the front door, my brother ran into the back door and then into bed. Dad made his way to my brother’s bedroom asked him if he had been outside and my brother said “no”. My dad pulled back the covers and the rope was still tied around his chest.

I met Miss Lynn about 8 years ago thru my husband Vernon. In fact I lived with her for a short while and let me tell you she was so full of life she was such a wonderful person to talk to and to be around. The last couple of years we really didn’t see each other until mid September and that’s when we reconnected. We would stay up and talk about everything. She was such a blessing to be around. My kids thought the world of Lynn especially her sugar bear (DW) that is the name she gave my son when he was born and till this day he remembers. Me and my family will cherish every moment we had with Lynn and I will never forget her kindness, her smiles and her laughter. Thank You Miss Lynn for being in my life it sure was a blessing.
Christina, Vernon, Brendan, Dw and Sissy
