Lynn, Mark, MacKenzie, Ayden and Rodak family, we’re sending our deepest condolences, thoughts and prayers. Lynn, I remember spending so much time at your place in our high school/college years and getting to know your mom. I remember the loving nature of your mom and I remember how much she loved you and loved spending time with you and her grandchildren. The love for her family shined brightly through her eyes and heart for all to see, it was beautiful. Your mom was kind, loving, fun and silly. I know that your mom loved you so much Lynn and I know she loved you Mark, she absolutely loved and adored M and A. I pray that with time the pain of her loss will become more bearable for you all. Sending love. Tracy, Tim and Daniel
