Mom, this is the hardest thing to do. Please know that I miss you greatly. We have fought many battles together. We won some and lost some. But this last battle was one we did not stand a chance at winning. You have taught me alot and I will always remember your words. I will try my hardest to fulfill your last hope. I love you mom. Always remembered and never forgotten!

Remembered as a strong, smart business woman and family employer who cared about the employees as much as she cared about her own family! Behind the glass her Stern looks (if you were messing up :) would never last long, eventually always turning into smiles. With love and gratitude always Garnette Lopez and Family.

Granny Lynn was my awesome mother-in-law for 16 years and was always a loving and forgiving lady who loved all of her family unconditionally and without judgment. She will be sorely missed, but the beautiful memories she leaves behind for all who knew and loved her will never be forgotten. Go rest high on that mountain Granny — rest high on that mountain in the heavenly presence of the Lord. Love you forever and always, Jeff
