To Lynn's family,

During our time on the staff at St Paul's we enjoyed visiting with Lynn weekly. She exemplified to me what being a "Southern Lady" was all about: polite, immaculately dressed, always kind, usually having a smile on her face and a twinkle in her eyes, with just a glimpse of "Steel Magnolia". She was so faithful in her commitment to St Paul's church and always an example in that respect. I know that she will be missed by many.

Please accept our sincere condolences.
