I really loved Lynne....I was probably 6 years old when she started attending UMC and I knew her pretty much my whole life.. She was kind, warm and very funny! The last 10 or so years she went to Church, she would set behind me and threaten me with a smack to the head if I didn't "behave"!!(of course, she wouldn't have)I lived on N. Cherry for many years and I would walk the neighborhood and Lynne at that time worked at the Dentist a couple blocks down my street. (in her silver station wagon!!) She took great pains with the flowers outside and I would talk to her often. I've really missed her lately since she left the Church...she will be so missed. She really was a very special lady.

Lynne was such a good role model to us all. She welcomed me into her family when my brother married her daughter, Belinda. She had been through hard times, but over come them with her strength, faith and determination to be a good person. I loved her so much.
