Lynn words cannot express how much you meant to me. You were a saving Grace my whole life. You were like a mother to me and made a difference and are such a part of who I am. I was blessed with two moms my own mother and you. You loved me, nursed me back to health and fixed my boo boos. I am going to miss that spark you had in your eyes when you grinned. You were a wonderful person and a wonderful mother, healer and nurturer. I love you sweet lady and picture you on that farm you longed for with all the baby animals to tend to. Fly high my sweet angel and give mom and Theresa and Aunt Betty and tight hug for me. Your work here is done and you did an amazing job. Until we meet again……
