My deepest sympathy to Lynn’s family. We grew up together and I have a lot of good memories of Lynn. We lost touch after high school but she was never forgotten. I remember going to church at St. Augustine’s church and enjoying listening to Mr. Benoit singing. May god bless!

Many prayers and blessings to this wonderful lady. I did not know you Lynn but I have had the blessing of knowing Amy and her family. You and Amy are of the same mold; therefore, I know the Holy Spirit runs deep in you and you are in Heaven.
