I haven’t seen Libby in years, but new her well. I use to babysit her niece and nephew when I was growing up in Winton. To all of her family, I would like to say you are in my thoughts and prayers. If anyone has any pictures of the family, please sent them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org I knew her mom as Bo. She used to come to my aunt Dot and uncle Jugs house in winton. I used to cut her grass when she lived in what she called the Sugar Shack 2 doors down from where we lived. I’m sure she will be greatly missed.
My condolences goes out to Lynn and your family at this time of loss. I remeber how close me and Lynn were when we were children. When we started going to different school and started getting older we drifted apart. Still I would never forget how loving her family was and how they would invite me in when I went to visit Lynn. I’m so sorry about your loss. I will keep you and your family in my prayers.
Lynn & Jimmy…..There are no words ever written that can say what we really feel in times like this but just know that Libby was a very special person & the Best Cross Guard that C.S. Brown School EVER had. Your family has our deepest sympathy. Please know that you are all in our prayers. Quincy & his family express their their heartfelt sympathy to you also.
Kenneth and I have been thinking about you and your family. Take care and we will see you when you return to work. If we can do anything to help you, please let us know.
My heart aches for Libby and her family. I regret our family has grown apart through the years.
Our mothers were the dearest of friends and I’ve known Libby all my life. At least tonight she is again whole and perfect and resting in the arms of her Father. My deepest sympathy to Jimmy and Trudy and your precious families.
