Lynn visited us in FL one year. Jeff and I took him deep sea fishing and he had a blast. I wish we had pictures because the look on his face was priceless. That same year we introduced him to some blue crabs. A neighbor of ours brought them over and showed Lynn how to eat them. Now she eats the whole thing, shell and all. lol And that's how Lynn ate them. He had the crabs all over his face and ate til he busted. lol Well miss you Lynn. Love Uncle David

On one of our trips up to see the family Lynn knew I loved animals and decided to tell me about a couple of little pigs he was raising out back. Well I immediately was excited to see the little buggars, as he knew I would be. So we went out back and there wasn't anything there. All of a sudden Lynn starting whistling and making goofy sounds and BOOM... Here comes two of the loudest LAND WHALES you'd ever wanna see. lol They were HOGS not piggies. Scared me so much I climbed one of the trees and to this day I STILL don't know how I got back to the house. Rest in Peace Lynn, we miss you.
Love Aunt Sandi

When I was a youngin (as Lynn & Charlie liked to call me) my family used to go to TN every year to visit Aunt Margaret and the family. I grew up with the boys. I called him my Lynnie and he called me Tooter, as most of my family do. He would walk me down to the general store and buy me a soda and some pixie stix. lol I'll never forget that. As I grew older I became interested in bird watching. When he found that out he would always seek them out for me when we were up there. One time he pointed out my first painted bunting. It tickled me so much that it tickled him too. lol I love you Lynnie and miss you already. God Bless, Tooter

Standing in the river waving a stick. Didn’t get to do it as nearly as often as he wanted to. Wherever you are now Pop I hope you’re having the time of your life. I hope that you, your Daddy, Rip, your Aunt Ruby, Granny and Grandaddy all are having a wonderful celebration. As much as I’m hurting I’m at peace with knowing you no longer are suffering. I take the next watch now and Mama will be ok.

Porch pickin’ with plenty of bluegrass! Lynn loved that banjo and we had lots of fun with the ‘Green Persimmons’ band.

Our family would come up on vacation to Aunt Margaret’s every summer, and we were teenagers and Lynn had just gotten a motorcycle before we got there and wanted to take me for a ride, my first and last. We hit rocks and wrecked but us and the motorcycle were ok. We laughed but I was sore
The next day. Love and miss you cousin, go with God
