My since condolences to you Linda and family. As its been years since I have seen Lynn it was so great to reconnect with her a couple years ago. She had a incredible passion for life and She truly lived her dream. I will always cherish those years in middle school where we played golf and hit our first golf balls together. Lots of fun and conversation. So so proud of her and her spirit. Hugs to you ! Barbara Galutia Regis

My condolences to the DeBruin family on the passing of Lynn. May the comfort only God can bring brings you strength and peace of mind. Death is such an unwelcome guest. Isaiah 40:29 Says, "He is giving to the tired one power and the one without dynamic energy he makes full might abound." He is a helper for us in time of need.

Sincere and heart-felt condolences from me to your family in this most difficult time.

I didn't know Lynn well, but covered University of Utah athletics alongside her since her arrival in Utah.

As a talented, accomplished and established female sports writer, Lynn was someone whom I admired, and tried to emulate. I watched, studied and learned from her as I embarked on my fledgling career. Lynn informally became something of a mentor, and encouraged me to continue my career in sports journalism.

Over time, we began to know each better and formed an all-too-short friendship.

As Lynn confided her private struggle with cancer, my respect and awe for her grew exponentially.

I was shocked to hear that she had so gracefully battled her terrible disease for so long. All the while, no one was the wiser, and Lynn continued to be the consummate professional that she always was.

Aside from her tremendous writing talent, I will remember Lynn as a kind-hearted, passionate and vibrant spirit who loved a good laugh with a close friend over a drink.

I'll remember her words of encouragement (without which I would be in a different career now) and her willingness to listen. More than all of that, I'll always remember, and draw upon the inspiration I got from watching the quiet courage and calm, but steely resolve to not only fight her disease, but to live a positive and high-quality life simultaneously.

Her attitude toward her battle is something I shall never forget, and hope to apply to my own life struggles.

I could only aspire to do so with the courage, strength and grace that Lynn displayed.

I'm sad to say that it was one more priceless lesson I took from knowing her, and gave so little in return.

I'll be forever touched by my short association with her, and a little piece of Lynn will be present in every story I will ever write as her gentle, and constructive criticism accelerated my learning curve.

Other than to face life and its requisite adversity head on, but with a smile on my face and a laugh on my lips, my continued work in her chosen field is the best way I know to honor, and remember her.

Rest in Peace, Lynn. Peace be with your family and friends in your absence.

please accept my sympathy for your loss.May these words found at Isaiah25:8 bring comfort for the whole family, it says that God will swallow up death for ever.I hope these promises from God will bring the family a hope for the future and a calm heart now knowing that God really care for us Tina-Los Angeles

I sincerely offer my condolence. Lynn's death has no doubt cast a shadow over you as you go about your daily life because death brings us face-to-face with the fact that she is gone too soon. Her presence will be dearly missed. So despite the pain of grief, let it be your resolve to work your way through pain and grief. The rich life that she led has left many memories. Jesus said: "Do not let your heart be troubled." Remember: God can help you to endure any and every problem they may face. He will give you the "power beyond what is normal" to go from one day to the next. (2Corinthians 4:7)

To Lynn's family and friends, I was a sportswriter whose path crossed Lynn's several times at golf courses over the years. We talked many times about cancer and the fight against it and she showed when my wife lost her battle at age 50. Quite a lady Lynn was. May she now rest in peace even though we'll miss her.
