    We are so sorry for your loss. My fondest memory of Lynn was of course when we were younger, Him coming over to the house to visit my mom, when he found out the we had stayed home from school that day, he would leave right away and return shortly with a small brown paper bag full of candy! He has left us with many fun memories. Our thoughts and Prayers are with you at this time.
