Please – NO FLOWERS – many charities helped with the cost of Lynn’s medications through the years, and the family would like to try to repay them so others can receive the same help. Donations may also be made to the Shriners.
From Lynn’s family: We were so blessed with wonderful doctors. Our special thanks to Dr. Nabi, Dr. Kline, Dr. Smith, Dr. Hodgman and all of their wonderful staff.
