My condolences to the family and friends. You all are in my continued prayers during this time of loss. I remember when I first started growing my beard and Lynn saw it for the first time at Wendys in Madison Heights. Oh my God she couldn’t stop laughing because it was new to her and strange to see a full grown beard on me. She had know me for years and was shocked at the beard. I will miss her greatly. Im glad I could give her that good laugh.

I did not know Lynn for a long period of time. We worked together at Food Lion. Her first day there she had me ROFLMAO....she was always in a good mood. Outgoing and friendly to a fault with everyone she met and I don't think she ever met a stranger. Go rest high on your mountain now Lynn, your work on Earth is done, (Vince Gill), Blake, Raven, and I will look after Jess. No worries girl.
Love you to the moon and back.

Gina, Kathy, Gail, Michelle, Allen, Tina, Brittney, Kimmy, Chucky:
Words can not begin to describe the pain I am feeling for you all, and how very sorry I am for your loss.
Lynn was a truly amazing woman, mother, sister and friend. I will always remember her smile and the way that she always found a way to make you laugh, even when all you wanted to do was cry. She had a way of looking at the world that made it not seem so bad or scary. I will always treasure our friendship, and know that I am a much better person for having known her... for knowing ALL of you.
You are all in my thoughts and prayers. Sending an abundance of love, light, comfort and peace. Please let me know if there is anything I can do. I love you all.

I just can't believe my lovely friend is no longer here. I met her back in August through Food Lion to go. She was the sweetest and kindest woman. We became fast friends. I will miss her smiling face and her hugs, going to Food Lion will never be the same. My prayers are with her family.
