Lynn was such a special lady. I visited with her many early mornings while having coffee next to her counter. I can still picture her with a cloth in her hands as she made certain her restaurant was always clean and tidy. I also remember her tucking my blouse label in before I headed out to work. I always looked forward to seeing her.
