To Lynn's Family and Friends
It was an honor work with Lynn at LMS. She had a no nonsense approach with students that was always tempered with care and concern. Her presence in my classroom not only helped students but helped me. Best of all I loved talking with her about our families. Her smile was ever present and working with her was a joy. We LMS retirees were together recently and we shared a sense of loss for our wonderful colleague. Please know that she is remembered with love.

Lynn was like a second mom, helping pick out my wedding dress, holding my shower, putting up with me in general :), etc... I will miss her eternally and hope to connect with you all again!

Miss you all,
