There are no words I can say to express my sympathy. Lynda was truly a beautiful soul. She was so wise beyond her years and was such a blessing to many. The very thing that stands out most to me about Lynda is her kind heart. Her willingness to meet new people, The way she was always interested in what you were saying. She had that ability to make you feel special. Not very often can you walk away from a conversation feeling like you had just been talking to your very best friend. She just always had a way of bringing endless amounts of comfort and possibilities to your out look on life. She was the very first person that talked to me when I first moved to walker, she made me feel welcome. I had just met her and it felt like I had known her for years. I send all my love and prayers to her mother and children, To everyone that had the pleasure of meeting this beautiful lady and to all the ones that are heartbroken over her being called home to heaven far to soon. Rest in Peace Lynda and please give Sweet Leann a hug from me.... I take in peace that you and your best friend are now reunited in heaven and I know you two have wonderful plans for all of us down here. You two were called home far to early but I truly believe the lord knows what he is doing and I will have faith in him and find peace in that. RIP BEAUTIFUL LYNDA!

I only got to know Lynda this this past year and she is one of those gems that really touches your heart. She was like a little sister to me. If there is anything I can do for any of her family just say the word. I will not forget her.
