Myself and my family would like to give you and your family our condolences in the loss of your mom. I remember her teaching many of my classes with Department at the Mystic Oral School. She was always lively and happy. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

I remember Lynn as being consistently kind and generous with her time. She was always loyal to her family, friends and preferred causes. Lynn knew the value of sharing a good laugh and encouraged others to join her in joy! Even though our lives went in different directions, I have always been grateful for the friendship we shared. I send my best to her loved ones who provided her with so much support during her failing health. I know she will be missed! From Pat Cohen
