I had the honor of knowing Lynn since the 10th grade! He was a wonderful man, kind & generous & a great example of what we should all be! He always had a smile & hug for me as well as a kind word. I will miss him greatly. I am so glad that Lynn & Rita were able to come to our 40th class reunion. It was such a pleasure to visit with them as well as watch the love they had for each other & the good time they had with & shared with all of us! They had the moves on the dance floor for sure that night!! Rita & family please know that you are in my thoughts & prayers. Love to you all, Lisa Anderson PIerce
