I met Lynne when I worked at East Middle School several years ago. My impression of Lynne was that she was a caring teacher who was concerned for her students. Later, when I ran into her at the fundraiser or at the farmer's market, she seemed positive and hopeful. I am so sorry for your loss. May Her Memory Be Eternal.
