The heavens opened their pearly gates to receive one of the sweetest ladies I know. Concerns for everyone else and she as second. Her gentleness and concern towards my family were second to none. She now gets to continue her dance with Uncle Jacque. Lyn, you will always be family first and bowling partner second. I am here for any emotional support you need. I will miss our phone conversations, Shirl and lemon meringue pie sharing. Love, “Sweetie”
