Dear Mike, Deb and family.
My heartfelt condolences to you all. Lynn will be sadly missed. Lynn and I spent many a night together in that Emergency department. It was a pleasure to work with her all those years. Miss Lynn was probably one of the most stubborn people I know, but it was one of the characteristics that you loved about her.
She hated when they changed things on her and was probably the only time you would ever hear a cuss come out of her, and even then "darn buggers" was the harshest thing she would ever say. She never talked poorly about anyone, that just wasn't her way, But every now and then you got a knowing nod from her if someone happened to be mentioned.
I always teased her about having plumbing problems because of all the luck she would have all the time at the casino. I would mention that she had horseshoes, well you know where....and all she would do is giggle and share her wealth with Mike who was the love of her life. She spoke fondly and often of you, you were her world.
She was kind and generous and the sweetest person I knew.
I will miss this kind soul. Love and hugs to you all.
Jeanette and Jeff Colman
