My best memory of Lynn is that we laughed through everything. We met early in our flying years and made mistakes together and just laughed and kept going. An instant smile came to both faces when we saw each other. We thoroughly enjoyed working together and laughing together. She was such a sweet person. My deepest condolences to her family and friends.
