There is so much on my heart, but no words seem to express well enough the impact Uncle Lynn had on me. I am thankful for all he poured into my life, as well as the lives of my husband and kiddos. I will miss him dearly.

Dear Uncle Lynn,

While we may not have know each other closely, the man I’ll always remember is an incredibly smart and caring one. The blanket you knitted for us will always stick out to me.

I hope to hear your family tree stories and play a game of chess with you someday :)

All Love,

As some of you know, I too am a twin.
My twin brother is overseas right now. He’s a traveler and a teacher. An uncle and an explorer. A brother and a son. A cousin and a nephew.
I’m a home-body and a healthcare Analyst. A father and a fellow brother, son, cousin and nephew. But also a writer and a poet.
Years ago, I wrote a poem about twins.
I revised it for this occasion.

Twins are…
Trouble from the start
They come in pairs then have to part
They arrive by stork or section-C…
And don’t say “I” but always “we”

Twins are…
Winners of great awards
Like trophies, Bars or even Boards
They sometimes dream and set high goals
Or take it easy… that’s how they roll

Twins are…
They may be different but over all
They share one name—just their last
But they also share a similar past

Twins are…
Never only one
They’re always two—twice the fun
Their lives are separate, quite unique
Never normal, quite a treat

Twins are…
Simply finally this:
Great together and apart amiss
But as stories and memories often show
A life well-lived, grants lessons we know

Now, may they grow and grow and grow.

We all miss you, Uncle Lynn!

Uncle Lynn,
Your high fives, knowledgeable conversations with you in your rocking chair and the smell of fresh baked bread will be memories I cherish. I could listen to you talk for hours about our family tree. I loved all the almanacs and yearly gifts and the company you shared with my mom. You will be missed by many and always loved.

I will always remember our visit in New York seeing Alberta Hunter belt out her Jazz Music!
And the white blanket you knitted for me at Christmas time.
I will miss your smile and may you rest in Peace. Love, Roberta ♡

I am so sorry to hear about Lynn's passing. Lynn, Glenn, and I were good friends at Brown County High School. I have very fond memories still over these many years. Wished I would have had a chance to reminisce with him before he passed. My thoughts and prayers are with the family in your loss.
