Sending love and prayers to your family at this time. Your mom will always have a special place in my heart. I have fond memories of her in my childhood. Sleepovers at Kim's house and she always kept me company at the laundry mat. She was a sweet woman. It was a beautiful service. Rest in peace Lynda.

Taylor White

My grandmother was the best woman I could have had in my life. She was loved by so many and touched so many hearts. I miss her phone calls every morning and then 3 more throughout the day, her back scratches, our card games and her genuine love telling me I'm her baby all the time. She was more than my grandmother, she was my guardian, she was my best friend, my person. She never missed a cheer competition or a soccer game. I will always love you, Gram. I am so lost without you. I'll always be your baby.

I remember all the fun I had growing up at the house, we used to tell stories and laugh so much, and watch stupid shows like are you being served and compare the characters to family members. The family gatherings on the holidays and when you danced with my mom and dad and Aunt Tina. Or how I would hang out at the laundry mat almost every day and gave you a ride home. I will never forget the times of my childhood and spending them at your house you truly were a special person, and I know you are with my mom and dad and Janice may you Rest In Peace, love you Aunt Lynda

Ayla Hathaway

To everybody out there reading this, I just wanted talk about how wonderful of a person my grandma was. Grammy was there till the day each one of her grandchildren were born. We have made so many amazing memories with her since day one. Grammy had the biggest heart and cared about so many people in her life. Grammy loved to play cards with anyone and everyone and I will never forget that about her. Most of all she was supportive. She went to almost everyone of her grandchildren's concerts, moving up ceremonies, etc. and supported them. Grammy is loved by so many people and forever will be. I wanted to let you know that I am wearing your necklace that you gave me and that I miss you so much and love you with all of my heart.

It’s hard to express in words what my Aunt Lynda meant to me. She was an aunt, a friend as well as someone I would go to for guidance. She was a second mom and her daughters, my other sisters. I treasure our memories and I will miss her immensely.

To those who did not know Lynda, she was the greatest mother-in-law a guy could hope for. Most importantly she was an amazing mother and grandmother. She loved her kids and grandchildren so deeply, they were absolutely everything to her. I will miss you. You are with my mom and I know you two will be watching over all of the ones you loved. God Bless you.

Love, Tom
