    Glen & Family, Jamie and I wish to extend our heartfelt condolences to you during this difficult time. We both worked with Lynn at Armbrae and cherish our memories of her. She had an amazing way of knowing where every child was on the playground and kept them all on time for their various activities as she called them up from play . She always had a smile, a fabulous pair of earrings and a contagious laugh. Thinking of you all, Margo and Jamie Langille

    Glen, Angela and Glen, I was so shocked to see Lynn's picture in today's paper. I cannot say enough about how sorry I am to hear of her passing. Glen, we had so many good times back when the kids were all small (even before the kids were born). Lynn was always there for her family and if you were a friend of hers, she stood by you at all times. As we drifted apart over the 60 years or so, when ever we saw each other, it was just as if we had seen each other the day before. My sincerest condolences to all of you including your precious children and grandchildren. Hug each other a little tighter. Lynn always did, with a big grin and loving words. She did love her ear-rings as long as I knew her, that was Lynn's legacy. Rest in Peace my friend....sing as loud with the Angels as you used to in the car. Judy & Family
