Mr. John Lynch was one of the kindest and most sincere people we have ever had the honor to meet. From the first time that we met John and Avis, they made you feel like you were always welcomed into their family. John, may you now enjoy your Hiking Ventures as you had on earth with our LORD JESUS CHRIST and may HE forever keep you in HIS arms everlasting.

I have many good memories of Uncle John, from childhood to now. Perhaps the most outstanding is his help — at age 68 — in helping me move home from Houston. It was a great act of love.
