Our family was blessed by Mrs. Lynn, not surprisingly after meeting her daughter Jen. Mrs. Lynn gave her time visiting and sharing prayers with our Mom. Mrs. Lynn always made her feel good as they shared their love of family.
We are so sorry for your loss. Our heartfelt sympathy to all the family.
Our Love,
the Demara family
