Lynn was a classmate I greatly admired during our school years. Her loss is shared by all of us who knew and admire her. My sincere sympathy to her family. Please take comfort in the knowledge that she now rejoyces with loved ones who greeted her as she joined them on the other side and she will be there to greet you when it is your turn to join her. She has not left you, she lives on in Heaven awaiting you.
