Lynn was just not a class mate, he was a cousin by marriage, Linda his wife and classmate was my wifes (Marsha Miller class of 62)cousin. Always willing to help in anyway he could. No only missed as a classmate, but a family member. Rest in peace Lynn you deserve it, you and Linda are together again.

So sorry to read of Lynn's passing.  Linda and I were friends from church and grade school and our boyfriends joined our friendship.  Lynn will be sadly missed but will be with Linda again.

I'm truly sorry to learn about Lynn's passing, especially of the cause of his death.  Alzheimer's is a hideous disease and takes great minds and personalities, even like Lynn's.    I remember his intelligence and good humor from various classes.  To know that he died so diminished  is unspeakably sad.  My sympathies to all his family members.....

I was saddened to learn of Lynn's passing.  His wife Linda & I grew grew up together in Second Avenue EUB church.  Now they are together again. ☺  My condolences to his family.  May they be comforted knowing their parents are together and one day they too will join them.

So very very sorry to hear about Lynn's death.  I wondered why he wasn't at the last 2 reuions, but I also thought maybe he was grieving Linda's death and just couldn't come. You're really home dear one and enjoying Jesus and Linda I'm sure!! It won't be long till we all have that reunion in heaven with you!RIP
