"Lynn, meeting you and Lynette has brought a new perspective to mind when I think of sibling love and respect for one another. I haven't known you long and Lynette even less but I can see how much you loved one another and that you handled adversity with a smile on your faces and a great and unshakable love for our Lord. I hope you find comfort in knowing Lynette is home and at peace. Love and prayers for you and your family."
"Lynn, you and Lynette have been such a joy and blessing to me in WNLBS. Her smile and positive attitude were an inspiration every time I saw her. Through it all she showed how much she loved Jesus, and I do hope our small group helped her deal with all the tribulations she faced, and she faced them with such grace. I will miss her!"
I know that Lynette greatly appreciated all you did for her during this very difficult time. You truly ministered to her in every way. We were all glad that you brought her to Raleigh, not just for her sake, but so that we could get to know her better and appreciate her even more. You were an example of Jesus to her and to the rest of us. We loved her and we love you!"
"Lynn, I am blessed to have had the pleasure to meet your sister Lynette. She was such an inspiration to me because despite how she was feeling being sick she always had such a big smile on her face!!!
Much love to you and you family. Joy"
"While I only knew Lynnette well for the past year, I will remember her smile, her laugh and her love for Jesus. Lynnette was an encouragement to us all. She put her trust in God, and I am sure that she is reaping the rewards in Heaven now. I miss her."
"We were saddened to learn of Lynette's passing. I had the pleasure of meeting Lynette, Lynn, and a group of ladies from the Wednesday night Bible study one Saturday when they were taking Lynette to see The Lion King. Even after one brief meeting it was easy to see the love between them. The server at the restaurant (where the group had brunch before the show) took a liking to Lynette and wanted to be sure he had a picture with her before she left. Her light shined even when she was not feeling her best!
Our prayers are with Lynn and the rest of Lynette's loved ones as you suffer through this loss. We pray you will take comfort knowing Lynette is with her Maker and no longer suffering in her earthly body. We are sending our hugs and much love!"
I am so sorry to learn of your dear sister's passing. You were a forever loving sister to have cared for you as you did. What an inspiration to the Body of Christ you were in demonstrating such love, dedication, and service. May you rest in the sure knowledge that your sister is at rest in the arms of her Lord and Savior. I'm praying that you will be comforted by His mercy and grace until you see her again in eternity. Much love goes out to you! Jeannie"
