Beth,Tripp,Olivia,Josh & Jordan I am so very sorry my heartaches for each of you. I didn’t get the chance to know Lynn as well as I would have liked to but yet in just the few encounters between Josh’s baptism, the wedding, shower & rehearsal and Jordan’s graduation I felt I did , Lynn was genuine and I loved that about him and each of you. I am grateful for the role model he was for Josh how that will bless their marriage and family and our lives. I pray God will comfort and carry you through every moment of everyday in Jesus name.

Dear Beth and family, I am so very sorry for your loss and have been praying for you all since I first found out. I don’t know of anyone who met Lynn, that didn’t like him immediately. He was a great nurse to our family and all others that he cared for. He could easily bring the laughter out of people, even in the worst of times. He will be missed by many, many people. He was just all around “a great guy.” Your family will continually be in my prayers. The loss of your loved one is hard, but the good memories are great to have to look back upon and cherish. May the Lord give you the strength, the calmness and the blessings of great memories.
