We are so saddened to learn of Aunt Mary Lynn’s passing. I have such wonderful memories of her all the way back to my childhood. One such memory is of her as a teenager taking me at probably 4 or 5 years old to school with her. My introduction to a juke box was from Aunt Mary!! She was always a beautiful, loving, fun person and an awesome piano player. It’s wonderful to know that she is in a heavenly place. Our love to her family!!
