Taylor, Ryan, Kelly and family. We are so incredibly sad to hear of our dear Lynnie's passing. Our hearts are broken and we wish we could be there with you during this time of mourning. Of course if we were not out of the country we would be there but know that our thoughts and prayers as well as our tears are with you all. Lyn will be missed by everyone. F-Dock and Red Rock Bay will never be the same without her enduring spirit. She was a fighter to the end and we all love her. Laurie will especially miss her dancing partner! We love you and already miss you Lynnie.

Love John, Laurie, Alexandra and Nicole.

As a child, I have such fond memories of Lynda and Gail and the Donovan family. When my family visited with yours, we had such fun. Lots of girl time with us seven girls! Thank you, Aunt Arlene, for making those memories possible. My heart breaks for your family's loss. Hold on tight to the good memories with Lynda and may they sustain you all in the days ahead.
With sympathy,
