Avidor, Emily, and Family,
I am so saddened by my classmate's passing. Lynn was very dear to me. Even tho we lost communication for many years, it became a wonderful renewed friendship in later years. We had many happy times together with Avidor and Lynn as we traveled South or traveled back to New York. They came to my husband's and my 50th Anniversary Celebration. Lynn and I planned and participated in our 5oth High School Class Reunion with great success. She was very special in my life in growing up years and in our later years. She will be missed. My thoughts and prayers to the family.
