What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch. We may not understand why she left this earth so soon, or why she left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little by little, we begin to remember not just that she died, but that she lived. May the comfort of God help you during this difficult time. Our prayers are with You all. Charles, Joe, Chris, and Family.

I am so saddened by this recent news. Lynn and I graduated together from MHS- 88 and shared many classes and memories together. I remember skating in her basement growing up and many sleep overs at her house. I am so sorry to hear of this sudden loss and her life cut short. Lynn had a sweet, caring spirit and she was loved by many. Esp. my dear friend Alicia Pace Riddle, who spoke of their closeness at ASU. Although it has been some time since I have seen Lynn, we shared many of the same friends growing up, and I wanted to offer my deepest sympathies to her immediate family and close friends. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Amy Carter Bland

Sonya Withers

In January, when I unexpectedly lost my wife, Lynn and Chris were there for me with loving support. They were our neighbors in Winston-Salem until last Friday. On moving day, I happened to be outside as they were pulling out of their driveway for the last time. Lynn hugged me and told me good-bye. I am so grateful for that moment. Lynn was a kind and gentle lady who will be greatly missed by all who were fortunate enough to have known her. My thoughts and prayers are with Chris and the children at this very, very sad time.
Jim Simmons

Chris, We are just completely heart broke to hear about Lynn. We can only imagine the hurt and pain you and the children are going through.

Jeanine Brown

Chris and family, you all are in my prayers. I only met Lynne the other day at the law office when she signed the deed to your house here. She said that the house sold sooner than she thought, but that God had a plan and would put her where she needed to be. An angel in heaven now and I guess that was God's plan for her. Stay strong and but your faith and trust in God - he will provide.
Carolyn Dalton

Charles and Pam, my heart aches for your loss. There are no words that comfort the loss of a child. Only your faith in the love of Jesus gets you through each day. I remember Lynn as a happy child and she grew up to be a beautiful young lady who touched many lives. Please know that David and I know how your world just changed forever and we are both here if you ever need us.. Much love and peace to you both, Lynn's husband and children.
Beth Smart

I find in my humanly ways that I'm searching for a reason of understanding mixed with confusion and hurt. But then my heart and spirit immediately tells me with confirmation, Lynn is in the presence of Jesus this very second and that He is whom we trust in ALL things. Lynn loved, trusted and served Jesus with so much passion. I can still remember her giving her testimony at Upward this past winter and thinking what an incredible and spiritual woman, wife and mother she is. May you all know that you are being thought of, prayed for and that you are so loved.
Traci Canter

I just wanted to offer my deepest sympathy to Lynn's family. Hearing this news saddens me beyond words. I met Lynn several years ago when I taught Sarah in fifth grade at RHES. I remember very clearly how kind and helpful Lynn was to me and our class that year. I am praying for your family now and in the weeks/months to come.
Allison Bowen

Before I read the whole obituary, I thought what a beautiful girl in the picture. After reading it and realizing I know both her parents, I was devastated. I have two girls of my own and just can't imagine what you are going through but you have my fervid prayers and sympathy. Beth Smart said it best and I can't say more than that.

Chris, Caleb, Sarah and Joseph: I am so sorry for the loss of a precious woman. Lynn was so precious to my heart. In my struggles with my faith, she always offered me encouragement and love. She was never judgemental and always talked of Jesus with such compassion. The world has lost a beautiful person, but heaven has gained a precious angel. I know the days to come will be difficult, but please have peace in knowing, the foundation Lynn laid was one built on the love of Jesus with assurance that one day you will all be together again. We are praying for peace for your family. With Love, Bryan, Gina, Dylan and Caleb
