Lynn was a special person. We worked together for over 5 years. She was a wonderful travel agent and we often shared our dreams of different trips we'd make together after retirement. She was like a daughter to me and she often called me mom when she needed advice or just comforting. Rest In Peace Lynn, you are loved and will be remembered.

Lynn has always been the light of the room. She loved to travel and the travel industry that she has been in for more than 25 years here in Central Arkansas. She loved and cherished her time with Rodger Kolb who has been invaluable to her life for the last 9 years. Samantha and her twin boys meant everything to her. She loved to be in the know about everyone and always tried to her a good friend to everyone.
I have so many great memories of us going to Miami the weekend before the Grammy’s, many luncheons together, spending time at the pool and just sitting on the phone talking for hours. I will miss our conversations, her smile and most of all our friendship. God gained a new angel and I am sure she is with her parents looking down on all of us. Rest In Peace my friend.

Samantha, Rodger and all family members,

I had the honor to have Lynn in my "Alltel Travel" family. Looking back over the years each one of us was so lucky to work with a team of co-workers that we really considered family. Watching Samantha grow up from a child into a women and then into a mother. Lynn was so proud of you and we can not even discuss the boys - William and Hunter. She would beam just talking about her boys! Rodger - thank you for the 9 years that you had with Lynn. I have never seen her so happy. While her time was short with us, she is with so many loved ones that proceeded her in death. What a joyous reunion. Thoughts and prayers to each of you in the coming days.
