Lynn, you will truly be missed. I am thankful for your family for sharing you with us yes we only worked together for a little under a year but it was a great time we had. No matter what mood we were in you made sure to hug me and I’m forever grateful for your sweet spirit.

Lynne, the tiny girl with the British accent. Best friend, walking to the 5&Dime and buying candy. Early 70s…Our parents and the non fires.. Walking our babies around our block and your Pram!! Our moms drinking coffee and our bikes and our dancing and your beautiful singing. My Boy Lollipop and our crush, Leif Garret. Tiger Beat magazine. Your mothers hot custard. I’ve been searching for you sis. My heart is broken. Never forget the skating at the rink in Wayland and us watching that teen boy making out with a new girl every week…Rest peacefully and when I get there, we will dance and sing again.

My lunch partner oh how I miss you. The two of us waiting on a new hire orientation or any type of HCA celebration so we could raid the food. I still have the sticky note you put on my desk that Thursday saying "there is food in the back" talked and shared a lot with each other. One thing that I most admired about you is you always was the same smiling Lynne no matter what you was going through. I know that you are smiling and watching over us. My prayers to the family.

- Adriane E Ayala, SAVANNAH, GA
