I am so sorry to hear of Lynn's untimely death. I remember Lynn from Durham High and enjoyed seeing her at reunions over the years. Know that my thoughts and prayers are with all of your family. I know you will cherish many good memories of special times together.

Many of my childhood and high school memories include Lynn, my cousin. Running around her neighborhood with her and Gwyn as well as cheering together for football and basketball games. She leaves the legacy of her creation with John of beautiful children and grandchildren. The world becomes different without Lynn in her physical body, but she will always be with her family in her spiritual form.

John and family: John and I are incredibly saddened at the news of Lynn’s passing. Some of my fondest memories of Lynn come from Orthopedic meetings both couples of us attended after John (S) joined Piedmont Orthopaedic Clinic. I can still see Lynn and I walking around San Francisco and stopping to talk with an artist. We found him so interesting and took up so much of his time, we both felt obligated to purchase a print of his. Another special time was at Sea Island, GA. (Probably at the GA Orthopedic meeting). We were so young and felt we had mastered tennis. (I can even remember the new tennis outfit I took for the weekend.) And then there are Furman football games, debutante seasons, and so many times. Lynn was a great friend and I cherish all the fun times.

Dear John, No words can capture the last month for Lynn and you and your family. We got your Christmas photo card with the word Grateful, that we think Lynn put together. So fitting, true, near prophetic. We echo and embrace the word—knowing we live in The Lord’s plan each day, by day. We have been and will continue to pray for all your family. Dave and Mary, Bengt and Anna Rose, Sam and Granger
