"I have been missing you so today. Really thinking about last Thanksgiving and the great time we had just chilling as a family and all your good sweet potato pies, lemon cakes, and pound cakes. Mostly just us sisters and Mommie chilling and getting to love up on one another before everything went haywire. Love you Lynn Rush"

"Just going to get lightbulbs for the house started the tingling of a tiny bell within my heart. Though this act may not seem significant, a savouring fragrance surrounded me. I am convinced that great love is shown through small acts that spiral outwardly and touch us. I miss those thoughtful deeds done from the heart. Love "Mommie""

"Lynn received salvation and the gift of eternal life through the anointed power of  the spoken preached word of God.  Luke 24:47"And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations..."  I share this gospel because "I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ; for it is the power of God unto salvation. Family I love you and share this news with all Mommie"

"My prayer is that all of us will make it and be able to tell the story up in glory. Nothing else on this earth matters if I do not get to see God in peace.  I am so thankful the Lord saved Lynn before she faced death.  The Lord is soon to come and holiness is a must!  Be ready, time is winding up. Praise God for the testimony we have through the life she lived. Love "Mommie""

"Just remembering and missing Lynn so much! But it's okay considering how blessed we all are to have had her in our lives. Now she has a home on high and shares a peace and joy we all are longing and searching for. We can never experience such victory on this side of glory but one day...If we live right we'll share her testimony and her joy.  Love "Mommie""

"Last night I passed a picture on our bookshelf of Lynn & Bobbie. They both were so small, so beautiful, young & seemed so whole. I smiled as I remembered how safe they were & how well we tried to care for & love both of them. Well years have passed & life has dealt us some deathening blows; but one thing is for certain. God is very much in control and he loves and cares for us all- Mommie"

"Today I see your reflection in the life of your sister, Bobbie.  In summing up what I see  it is fair to say  both of you provide a model of strength and faith for all of us. You show us that life is not to be lived in fear but rather purely and reverently in honor and glory to our wonderful and mighty all powerful and all knowing God. I have been blessed by your lives! Much love - Mommie"

"Reading these notes that go out help soothe the aches  and to dry the tears that flow after losing such a precious child. As we reflect  on the joy and laughter she brought to all of our lives don't forget we must also cross this "jordan".  And every moment we live here on earth we will carry with us.  Time is short and we all have an appointment  with eternity - Love  ya'll Mommie"

This tribute was added by Beleta Butts on 29th April 2012

""I DREAMT" I often slept at your side when you were weak and tired, dreaming of a day when you'd awake with strength and tire no more.  I also dreamt one day that healing would prevail and lock away your tears and pain behind a huge steel door. Lo' while I slept and dreamt of  us winning and joyfully telling your story, you woke  me to say "this dream is real, for I live with God in glory."

This tribute was added by Beleta Butts on 24th April 2012

"We are feeling the void of her being gone. She was a true friend, daughter, sister, cousin and most of all Saint of God. Wonderfully felt is the evidence that she lived a life that touched so many of us. Lynn acted out of pure TLC in all that she did.  Eyes are filled with tears not because she is lost but rather because we miss her so much. Your love remains a part of us - Always "Mommie""

This tribute was added by Stacy Robinson on 20th April 2012

"Lynn Rush I dreamt you were still here with us.  We were laughing & talking in somebody's bedroom just like we used to. I really miss you girl.  I still hear your voice calling me "Stacy Mae", still hear your laugh, I still cry at the thought of not seeing you again on 'this side', my heart is still hurting.... But I'm so glad you're with Jesus! Love you, Stacy Mae"

This tribute was added by Beleta Butts on 17th April 2012

"From the days of your early childhood you were the boss, You were determined to help out even before your head reached the top of our kitchen table. One day you set out to serve the milk but the floor really got most of the milk you thought you were pouring for your sisters. No matter, you set a standard of helping and giving. You talked a lot but you also gave a lot. We miss you!  Mommie"

This tribute was added by Beleta Butts on 11th April 2012

"Not long ago you left us to find peace, comfort and rest.  But sometimes it seems like you have been gone for a long long time.  I miss you so much! Yesterday,  Bobbie and I were working on some tings that are  linked to "y'alls" life. Just a reminder to us of how you will always be a part of our lives and your precious memory we always will keep and cherish until.... Love "Mommie""

This tribute was added by Beleta Butts on 4th April 2012

"I shed a tear this morning just because I miss you.
I sighed in loneliness, longing and yearning for your presence.
Then I remembered you have a new and glorious home on high
So I retreat from the pain to grasp the joy, knowing God's hand now holds you nigh.  Love "Mommie""

"While we were traveling this past week I thought about Lynn and all the good times we shared. She loved going on trips.  It was so wonderful having Bobbie with me this time and to see the healthy affect the trip we just took had on her.  I am thankful for the hope and peace and contenment God has allowed us to share. Sickness can't claim all the glory for Lynn or Bobbie but God can. Mommie"

"Our pastor says every death has a purpose.  Lynn  focused on  proclaiming truth to everyone she spoke with in health, in illness and unto death. - a  mirror of our  leader now a treasure of our Lord. As I reflect on the purpose of Lynn's life I can build on that purpose for the duration of my life.  Lord, please allow my life to mirror our great leader and to glorify you in all that I do!"

"Looking towards heaven for strength. A lot of people say to me you take such good care of your sisters. I immediately correct them and say just returning the favour. You took good care of me and my other sisters and even Mommie and Daddy. When we had kids you just jumped in and took over. ( Boss Lady)  I had to remind you who his Momma was if I had to discipline him. But it didn't work LOL"

This tribute was added by trina brewer on 14th March 2012

"Always thinking of you, missing you, and loving you. Remembering so many transitions we've endured together. Life is not the same without you. When we spend time as a family there is a huge gaping hole in our hearts. You were the center of the family. The light of our lives. The best big sister anyone could ask for. I am grateful that my son got to be spoiled by you and has your" BIG EYES""

This tribute was added by Beleta Butts on 11th March 2012

"Lynn was so full of love.She lived her life loving all of us and she left here  giving herself  in love as the big sister - the boss. As a child I read about heros and "she-ros".  As a mother I saw such proof  in my daughter, Lynn; living for her God and her family. She was not the oldest or richest of us yet none of us can say we gave or loved more than she did. I really miss Lynn, Mommie"

This tribute was added by Bethany Rush on 3rd March 2012

"The reality that you've left me  brings pain and tears but I thank God for the memories I've gained through the years.  Your presence lingers in my heart and  your love is embedded in my mind. I treasaure the joy & laughter you brought and the spirit you had was so grand and  so kind. I long and I cry but I don't say good-bye cause I 'll join you one day in our home  in the sky. "Mommie""

"Bobbie just reminded me of the time when we were out late at Perkins. We were talking about school. Lynn said " Monkey's are reptiles." Me and Bobbie were like" What"? She always gave us one we laughed so hard we made the waitress laugh. She argued us down because she was convinced. We used to have a ball. There is a hole in our circle but we still love you dearly Lynn Lynn."

"I just wanted to reflect back on all those wonderful times we had together, traveling over the past few years.  From Indy to Cleveland, KY, Atlanta, Cinncinati & even Polk City IA. One night Lynn & I ended up in front of a pond right outside of Cleveland OH.   Well with God's protection we survived, stayed in a beautiful suite & just hung out with Niecy & Sydney.  Many days of fun! Mommie"

So I'm striving to live my life for Jesus and to stand in His presence someday in peace. When I get home  I  know all my tears  will  also be wiped away & I  will "tell my story up in Glory".   In my heart you remain, Lynn.  Mommie ( Mother Beleta)"

"I'm so glad Love abides forever! There is a love I will always have and cherish as a most beautiful "keepsake" towards my oldest daughter, Lynn. Today she would have given me a teddybear, with a beautiful card and some candy. She never missed an opportunity to show me the utmost love and respect. I know as much as I love her the Lord loves her best. I miss  "Lynn Rush" Love always "Mommie""

You unselfishly shared your session w/me.We graduated together "92".I remember how you took me to Thomas Whitfield's concert w/ you & how I asked you to be my maid of honor.

"I remember when we had family and friends service at old TV and everybody had to invite somebody. Lynn was calling people to come and getting in contact with them and she started cussing them out  and telling them God been too good to them. The tactics were wrong but she ended up having the most people come. Just Comedy!  The one and only Lynn Rush"

This tribute was added by trina brewer on 3rd February 2012

"We really miss you Lynn Rush.I remember when Lynn was thirteen and she snuck off with the car because Mommie and Daddy was taking too long. We all got in and went from Aspen Way to Zayres and got caught by Granny. That was the beginning of our adventures in sneaking away with the car. Of course  Granny called  Mommie and we got in trouble that day. But we just figured other ways to escape."

This tribute was added by Beleta Butts on 3rd February 2012

"Missing Lynn so much.  I am going to the grocery store today.  If Lynn were here she would be totally stressed by the prospect that I am going to the store. My girls have the nerve to think that I am cheap. Can you imagine that!  Anyway I made a list and marked "no generics" on most items. I even made out a menu. Lynn would be so proud of me. I'm trying to hold it together for ya - Mommie"

"Hi family: I was reflecting back on the many "works" of "Lynn Rush". She was so full of life and never stopped being busy and bossey.  The punch-line is she was always working for the good of the whole - she was so unselfish! Well ok Lynn "stole" my car at the age of 12 to take all of her sisters for a ride but after all she had to entertain them. It was her job.  She was "Ma - tha" Mommie"

"I just want to ask a throw back question. Who remembers old TV when Lynn tied the soprano sections choir robes together? We used have a ball. Me and Lynn was always catching stuff on fire with our science experiments. We could talk Niecy into it but Bobbie was always looking at all of us as her underlings. Rush Girls forever! Love you Lynn"

My prayers are with the family! See you on the other side Lynn"
