Sympathies and prayers for the family. I just became friends with Lynn in the Fall but we became fast friends and just last week had dinner, and movies the week before. She was precious and so sweet, She had a beautiful heart and was a joy to be around. I still find it hard to believe she is gone. I am so sorry for Dylan, the family, and her friends. Just for the time I knew her, I knew she was one of those people you meet in life who will leave a lasting impact. Those people are so rare indeed. God Speed pretty lady and rest in peace.

To the Smith Family, so very sorry for the tragic loss of your loved one, Lynn. It is always difficult when you lose a loved one, but even more difficult when it is so sudden and unexpected. I have worked with Jack & Jimmy for more then 20 yrs....they are part of my Walmart family. My thoughts & prayers are with the family & friends during the coming days. May God bless you and comfort you during this sad time.

I remember Lynn as a toddler when our family went to SouthCarolina for the reunion. What a great family the Calwell are, and have lost a great Lady, who now is with my mama Ina who died 3 months ago. God bless all who mourn and rejoice for all she has gained in Heaven, Love MaryBeth

Dear Family and many friends,
My deepest heartfelt sympathies go out to each and everyone during this most difficult time. The very best and most beautiful things in this world cannot be seen or even heard but felt deep inside our hearts, a place that Lynn left such a beautiful and lasting impression upon. This loss is so painful and there are so few comforting words when we need them the most..I pray that this sorrow is tender in the healing of the broken hearted and that every day becomes easier. A great soul never dies it brings us together again and again and echos still within our thoughts our words and hearts forever as you will my sweet and beautiful friend. May you now rest in everlasting peace Lynn, as you soar high with the angels.

Dearest Lynn,
You are one of my oldest friends. I remember meeting you in the heart room and I was about to face Dr.Utley. I was so scared and nervous. You as the person you are, can always break the ice, make anyone feel welcome and that everything is going to be OK. And it was! I have shared in your most happy times and even some of your saddest. Over the years I have watched you raise an outstanding young man that every Mother would be proud of!! He is who he is because of you Lynn.
Before I say goodbye I just want to tell you how truly sorry I am for ever hurting you, not being there for you, and most of all not being the first to make things right between us. I have thought of you hundreds of times over these months. I took for granted that there would always be enough time. So foolish of me! I have missed you. I will forever miss you Mary Lynn. I know that you are in Paradise now as you walk with Jesus. I know that you find comfort with those who went before you. If only just another minute, an hour, or even a day. Until I see you in Paradise my friend.
Thank you GOD for the time I was blessed with this wonderful women in my life!

And He answered him, Truly I tell you, today you shall be with me in Paradise.
Luke23:43
Then shall the dust (out of which God made man's body) return to the earth as it was, and the spirit shall return to God Who gave it.
Ecclesiastes12:7

I Love You Lynn,

I worked with Lynn at SRMC. She was always a lot of fun to work with and very knowledgable about her job. She had a passion for her job as a CST and RN. Prayers going out to the family. God Bless, Christine

I was so sad to hear this news. Lynn was a beautiful caring person that will always have a place in my heart. She dated my brother Dee a few years back. She was a huge support to me after he passed away March 2013. She would send me messages checking in on me the last few years. She always made me smile. Heaven gained a true angel for sure! She loved her family and was so proud of Dylan! May God bless your family with comfort and peace during this grieving period. Susie Burnett and family
