    I met Lynne on the sandy beaches of Pike Lake when I was 5 and she was 4 and I found out we would be starting school together. Little did I know on that day that this would start a friendship that would span five decades. Lynne has always been a great friend but most importantly an inspiration to me. I have learned many life lessons from Lynne especially the one where I will wake up each day and live it like I am going to live forever, that is what she did, with her many health challenges she never stopped living life to its fullest! Nothing slowed her down. Her latest visit June 2012 saw her golfing, biking, ziplinging and playing cards until the wee hours of the morning! She was one amazing woman and I will miss her deeply. I know Lynne’s spirit will be with me always.
