Jill and I knew Lynda when she was in the first grade. Lynda and I were baptized together at Duke Center United Methodist Church. We would like to express our sincere condolences at this difficult time. May she be at peace, as she so rightly deserves.

So sorry for your loss, Marilyn, Tracy, JerryAnn and family. Seeing Lynda's name brought so many memories of playing in the yard with her and Tracy, organizing "stuff" on the patio at your house (I don't remember what, but I'm sure it was an important part of our play), your faithful Irish Setter (not sure the name anymore) . . . . Bible School . . . So many years ago. Loss and change are sad and really hard to fathom sometimes. I am certain that she is experiencing the joy of heaven now and is catching up with everyone there as she never knew a stranger. My condolences.
