Dear Family,

My grief is too great to express. I was closer to Lynn than my own sisters. I miss her terribly. I can’t say enough how sorry I am and I am praying for all your family. I pray that God gives you strength and that you can feel His Presence comfort you. Lynn was a wonderful, caring and giving lady. Her Spirit will forever stay with me.

God’s Peace,

Arlene Okey

Dear Rob — I am so sorry about your mom. I didn’t know who it was until last night — Saturday, May 31 — when Rosalie Gray told me. I feel terrible that I missed the services. If you are still in town, please e-mail me and maybe we can get together. If not, e-mail me anyway! I would love to talk with you if you’re up to it. Take care. Betsy

For Aunt Hazel, Uncle Ernie, Chief, Cindy, and families.

I remember going up the backstairs of the house in Lafferty and too many cousins in a bed;

I remember sitting on the living room floor together playing Cootie and board games;

I remember going to Ocean City and the rainy afternoon and the Italian restaurant and looking at the seaweed that had washed up on the beach;

I remember standing together on the porch in Scottdale with new toys;

I remember a time of simplicity and joy.

My thoughts now sit quietly in the room;

My memory flashes scenes of love, of happiness, of family together.

I remember. That is the gift we are given.

I didn’t know Lynn for very long, but for the short time I did know her, she touched me deeply. I am a student at Ohio University Eastern and this quarter, I was placed as a student observer in her classroom. She was a wonderful person and you could tell she loved her job. Lynn always had a smile on her face no matter how chaotic the day was going. I had just talked to her about wanting to do my student teaching in her classroom the Monday before. She was so excited. I’ll never know how she would have made an impact on my teaching, but I know she would have made a difference. I miss her terribly. With Deepest Sympathy, I am sorry for your loss.

I would like to let you know what a wonderful person Lynn was and the tremendous effect she had on my life. I was fortunate enough to be a student teacher under her from January 2003 to March of 2003. She taught me so much that I will take into my career as a teacher. It is because of her passion and love for her work, that I decided to begin my master’s degree in special education. Your family has my sincerest sympathy and please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. And also know that Lynn is alive in what I do as a teacher.

Sincerely,

Jill Schumacher

Mr and Mrs Ernest Albanese Sr:

My sincere sympathy to you and your family at this most tragic time. May God give you strength to bear this loss.

Please accept my sincere condolences at this sad time. I remember your mother always being very active at the middle school and involved with you both. It was evident that she loved you deeply.

Ten years ago Lynn was my daughters’ preschool teacher at MACO workshop. My daughter Kendra was born prematurely and at the time was struggling with a heart condition and developmental skills. Lynn was so kind and patient with my daughter and helped her in ways that I will always be grateful for. My daughter now attends regular school and is doing well. I am sure that it is in part to the great start given to her by Lynn. She never failed to speak with and encourage my daughter whenever we met. We have very fond memories of our days with her.

There are no words that can even come close to describing the amazing teacher and friend Lynn was. Both of our children had the privilege of having Lynn as their teacher…but more importantly…as our friend. We have alot of wonderful memories to treasure in our hearts forever. We were blessed to have known her and she will be greatly missed.

Please know that you have our deepest sympathy and we will continue to keep your family in our prayers.

To all of Lynn’s family from the bottom of our hearts we offer our deepest sympathy. We were her neighbors directly across the street. We knew Shannon from some portraits we did for she and Lynn several years back. I also belong to the Woodsfield Presbyterian Church which shares our wonderful Pastor Connie. I hope she can comfort everyone as I know she can. I will miss Lynn’s friendly waves and our chats we had as she walked by. She will be missed. You have our deepest sympathy and may God be with you and bless you all. Chris and Marsha Grimm

To dear Lynn’s family, I can’t imagine what you are going through right now. I can’t begin to tell you how very sorry I am for all of you. Your daughter and mother was so very special. She touched our lives every time we saw her. In school, in church, wherever we were. My little girl just loved her when she saw Lynn in class. We will miss her dearly. She will look over us and be our angel, just as she did here on earth. The only thing that makes me feel better is that she no longer needs to be afraid. She is in God’s arms now. My thoughts and all my prayers are with you now and forever. Lauren Schumacher

We were very sorry to hear of Lynn’s passing. Our daughter Amy and Shannon were in the same class all through school. We talked with Lynn last October at Olivia’s wedding which Shannon and Amy were her Matrons of Honor. Lynn will always will be a part of our memories of Barnesville and her entire family will be in our prayers. We are unable to attend her funeral due to our work schedules, but our thoughts will be with you. Our Deepest Sympathy, Michael and Diane Wright
