I grew up with Lynn as kids in Valley Station Kentucky. I remember Mrs Thompson as I always respectfully called her and her amazing patience with not only her kids but the neighborhood kids running through her house. I especially loved dropping in on goolash night where she welcomed me at the table. I missed them all when they moved. Praying that her family finds peace in those wonderful memories and comfort that she was very much loved by them. May God Bless You

It was an honor to meet this beautiful lady! She could light up a room with her smile and sweet spirit. She loved her family unconditionally and was ever present with them. She will live on through the memories she left and the impression she made in individuals lives. She was an amazing woman who will be missed here on this earth but will be reunited with all in heaven!
