It was a pleasure to work with Lynn at Lighthouse for the past 5+ years. She was such a homework support to the students. I appreciated her great sense of humor, and another viewpoint always. She was a constant source of historical data , I enjoyed our conversations . Our hearts are sad.

I am so sorry for your loss, I only met Mrs. Rankin a few times but she was a very nice person. I have known Erin for several years and we are friends. I will keep you and your family in my prayers and I am sorry that I will not be attending the services due to the Covid-19 concerns but will be thinking about you all during this emotional time. God Bless you all and keep you strong throughout this time. Love to you all.

Her passing reminds me of my warm personal and professional relationship with your father, Paul, who I miss to this day. Because of my health situation and the Covid-19 issue I will not be attending any services. God bless you all. May he grant you peace.
