Dear Family,

I was very saddened yesterday morning while reading the Poughkeepsie Journal that I saw Lynn’s name in the Obituary column. I last saw Lynn a year ago or more when she was visiting Dawn and ran into them in the local supermarket. We planned on having lunch and spent a pleasant afternoon together. I worked with Lynn for a very short time at Flowers by Reni in Fishkill. Since that time we remained friends. She will be missed by many and will remain in my thoughts always.

Sincere regrets

I will always remember how Lynn took me under her wing and taught me to cook, crotchet, garden, and become a better mother. I will miss her laugh and wisdom. and sharing a half cup of coffee.

It is with heavy heart that I say goodbye to my good friend Lynn, who was like a mother to me. She taught me so many wonderful things especially how to appreciate the little things in life like a hummingbird or a flower at first bloom, she had such a love for these things. I will miss her tremendously and will carry her in my heart and mind always. My heart goes out to all of her loved ones.

To the family:

Received a shocking email this morning from Allyn. She has been keeping me up to date on family matters since Ray and I moved. We are both so sorry for your loss. It seems like only yesterday Garee was helping me plan my wedding by being my maid of honor. Though we drifted apart I thought of her often. I know she will be missed by all.

We were saddened to learn of Lynn’s passing. She welcomed us to the neighborhood when we bought our home next door and was always ready with a cup of coffee and a chat even after she and Don moved around the corner. I never look at my gardens that I don’t think of her, the flower lady. May your memories of her comfort you.

When it comes to calling someone a “Friend”, one could not ask for a better one that Lynn. She, along with Don, were our best friends and, as far as we were concerned, part of our family. She was always there when we needed her—except on Sundays during NASCAR–and we could always count on her for a kind word or some good advice. She will be missed and will always be in our hearts and minds.

It is hard to understand why someone so wonderful has been taken from us—but find comfort in knowing that we were all a special part of such a well lived life. Good Bye Lynn —We will miss you..
