Dear Norma and Family, I am so sorry to learn of the recent passing of Lynn. My memories go way back to years ago when Lynn and my youngest brother, Charles, were in school together and good buddies.

You are in my thoughts and prayers.Robert Ford, Jr.

Sheila and I joined Calvary in 1993. It has been both a pleasure and blessing to know and Worship with both Lynn and Norma! Lynn and I caught a lot of fish visiting before and after church! Lynn loved his Lord, family and church family! We will miss him! We will continue to lift Norma and the family in prayer!
So sad to learn of Lynn's death; however, as Philippians 1:22 states: "For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain." Jerry Dale and I enjoyed visiting with Lynn and Norma on several occasions.
