"Today is a day that I will never forget. 67 years ago God graced us with mom's birth and what a glorious day that was. We were so blessed by her contagious smile and sparkling eyes for nearly 66 wonderful years. Mom, you forever hold a very special place in my heart. Everyday you are by my side and I know it. I love you and miss you lots. Happy Birthday!!"
"Its impossible to convey all that this wonderful woman contributed to my life and the lives of others. One of the kindest souls and sweetest hearts imaginable. Forever missed and in my heart.
"Remembering Lynn and now watching the Slideshow brought tears to my eyes as seeing Lynn in all the pictures brought back so many memories. We met when we were volunteers at a thrift shop in Lakeway. I always looked forward to seeing her on Wednesday afternoons and we did have a good time there. She was a dedicated worker and always had that beautiful smile. Lynn loved her family and we would always talk about our kids and grandkids.
I really miss Lynn and know that Heaven gained an Angel........"
"If Roses grow in Heaven, Lord, please pick a bunch for me, Place them in my Mother's arms and tell her they're from me. Tell her, I love her and I miss her, and when she turns to smile, place a kiss upon her cheek and hold her for awhile. Remembering her is easy, I do it every day, but there's an ache within my heart that will never go away. ❤"
"I’ve been thinking of Lynn so much over the past few weeks and my thoughts seem to go back to our years as children. It was only the two of us for many years until John was born and much later Cindy. I especially remember her excitement at Christmas. Lynn loved and I mean loved Christmas. Our strict orders from Mom and Dad were “no going down stairs and opening presents until the sun is up”. However, Lynn was so excited she would be up before dawn and, of course, she would wake me too. We would sit in the window seat at the top of the stairs facing the horizon, waiting impatiently for the sun to come up. Lynn was so excited she couldn’t sit still. Her whole body shook and she muffled her laughter least Mom and Dad hear us. Finally, when we spied the first rays of the sun, we rushed down stairs and tore into the presents while Mom and Dad sat bleary-eyed with a cup of strong coffee and a cigarette. They, of course, had been up all night wrapping our gifts. There are so many precious memories I have of Lynn. When I think of Lynn it will be that laughing little girl and that incredible mother and grandmother she grew to be. I love you Lynn."
"Lynn holds a very special place in my heart and I will love and miss her always. For over forty years she has been a part of my life. I am truly blessed to have known her as she became a mother and grandmother. I don’t think anything brought her more joy than her family. I marveled at her talents in cooking, decorating and above all being a Mom. She was so proud of her children and grandchildren. Over all these years I loved to see Lynn and Chuck together reminiscing about their childhood. She made Chuck smile and laugh as no one else could and she laughed at his jokes even if they were sometimes a bit goofy. What a wonderful loving relationship they shared. Words will never be enough to convey all the loving thoughts I have of Lynn. I can only say how fortunate I am to have known this very special lady."
"Lynn was not only my older sister but my mentor and role model for most of my life. She often told people that I was her first child. Later in life we grew very close becoming confidants and best friends. I will forever miss the twinkle in her beautiful blue eyes, her heart warming laugh and her ever present smile. Whenever I see a beautiful flower I will be reminded of her and the love she had for them. Throughout my children's lives she showed them an abundance of love and generosity that will live on with them forever and for that I will be forever greatful. Rest in peace my sweet sister, I will never forget the love we shared and the good times we had. Forever in my heart your loving sister."
"Our hearts ache for this loss. So very many years, so many wonderfully crazy memories - Lynn always opened her heart, arms and home any time to everyone; she maintained relationships and friendships, often going that extra mile when it would've been easier to let go. We are SO very blessed to have had her friendship, her love and to have shared a small part in the life of this amazing lady - and she was always every bit a lady. Rest peacefully and well, Lynn, you have earned it with your tireless commitment to everyone but yourself and you are so deserving. Love you and miss you, as always. R & G"
"Butterfly, butterfly in the sky,
You look so beautiful way up high.
It's finally time to spread your wings,
To soar above, and enjoy all blessed things.
We shared last laughs, and watched you smile
Listened to music, and connected all the while.
The stories and prayers are just a small glimpse
of what we have shared,
But the time seemed perfect as your wings caught air.
A beautiful woman, an amazing life
So much to celebrate as you took flight.
Butterfly, butterfly we love you so
Rest peacefully tonight,
We know you are with us wherever we go.
Mom, we love you always xoxo
Marcene, Stephanie, & Kyle"
