Lynda was our bible study leader at Johnson Ferry Baptist before
she became ill.
Lynda was one of the most sincere,knowledgeable and caring people that I ever knew.
She would always ask about my brother that was on the prayer list.
Lynda was a definite blessing to the Lewis Abbott class.
We pray for comfort for the family during this time.
