I hired Lynn at Highland and loved working with her. She was always smiling and was a faithful, loyal and excellent employee.
I loved her and could always count on her to do her best , which was always excellent. We shared Christmas cards every year and am saddened to hear of her passing. She will be missed. My condolences to her family and friends. Wish I could be there tomorrow. God speed.
