    My heartfelt condolences We are first cousins and many who didn’t know us well thought we were the same person. We did look a lot alike. Even confused my mom when she was older.
    Lynda was always upbeat a bright light.
    You’re a beautiful bright star in heaven.
    Will always love you cousin Dianne

    To Rachelle and Clint I send my condolences and love. Your mother was love. She loved all that knew her and those that she didn’t know. She was funny, caring, and she had a special love for her family and her patients. If the both of you can keep that kind of love going you will make a difference in this world. Stay strong and cast your cares upon the Lord and let him direct your paths!

  3. Family, you have my sincere prayers. Love you all❤️
