    I met Lynda through the American Women’s group and immediately liked her for her warmth and friendliness. I’m so thankful I had the chance to sit and have brunch with her at one of our meetings and to share casually with her at other meetings. I was so sad to hear of her passing and have said many prayers for your family to be comforted during this difficult and heartbreaking time. I’m thinking of you all especially during this holiday season. May God comfort you with His peace that passes all understanding.
