May God bless Lynn’s family during their time of grief. I’m going to miss my friend, partner in the ministry, and fishing buddy, but I will see Lynn again one day; for I placed my faith in Jesus just as he did. 😔🙏🎣
Brother Lynn was a fine example of a caring pastor. He had a passion for the lost. I enjoyed my time of worship with him. I know we will meet again. Praying for Sister Verenda and family.
Lynn you and Verenda have been my friends since 1956 when I started school at Stanford. You were our class President and we all depended on you. My brother even married into your family. Verenda I feel for you. My husband has been gone 8 years. As long as I breathe I will miss him and I know you will miss Lynn the same way. Sending hugs as I can’t come to services. May God be with you. Love you.
I am really going to miss Bro.Lynn...He was my Pastor..my friend..and my "Adopted Grandpa"..I will never forget the very first time I met him and my whole family immediately saw the resemblance he shared with my Grandpa who had passed ...I proved it to him with a picture and from then on we shared a special bond..I will miss him always calling my name from the pulpit every time it snowed because he knew I loved snow ...I will never forget him and I will always cherish the memories ...I am praying for you Ms.Verenda..and for your family..I love you and Im very thankful God placed you both in our church and in my life
