Memories Timeline


  1. Endurance is applying what we know to be true is just as important today. To illustrate. a mechanic may have tools, material, and knowledge. But he will not benefit from those assets unless he uses them. If he has done mechanical work in the past and has gained valuable experience in the process, he must continue to practice what he has learned in order to stay skillful and productive. I commend you to endure these trials as I pray for you.

  2. you were amazing and strong, your love to help others shined so brightly in our darkest moments, I have never forgotten all your help but most of all your kindness. I am glad I was able to express my gratitude towards you in person, you made this world a better place and your light will be so missed; however, your legacy continues in us that you helped.

  3. I am heartbroken to hear this news today. I am so sorry for your loss, Tom and family. I hope that your beautiful memories will give you peace during this difficult time.

    Lynette’s husband, sister and niece were the absolute lights of her life, as well as her furkids. She would light up every time she spoke of them.

    Lynette was a friend and co-worker at the Crisis Center. We shared an office for several years. She was passionate about helping clients and so giving of herself. She was an amazing advocate who went that extra mile for others. We had plenty of silliness and laughs as well, which I will treasure always.

    She will be missed. RIP, my friend.
