I loved Lynda. I have not seen her in many years because life just happened. I was the first person Lynda met when she moved her from Arkansas and we stayed pretty close for many years. She was a delight. I just got back on Facebook and had planed to "friend" Lynda to see if we could reconnect and the next day I got a message from a mutual friend that Lynda had beat us to Heaven to see Jesus. I had no idea she was ill. I was not able due to medical reasons, to attend her services but I did watch the stream. It was a wonderful memorial to her. My heart goes out to her family and friends because even though she was Heaven's gain we shall miss her irresistible love and laughter. You won't even know you were gone before we meet again. Linda Lovell, January 31, 2022 So sad to hear about Lynda's passing we had lots of fun in her group through New Comers of McKinney. I loved being in her company and she always had a way with words that were making you feel welcome. I will surely miss her and all the fun she made you feel around her. Loved her very much and my regards to her family, she was a loving Lady. Lanell

Scott Nichelson, January 23, 2022 I got a chance to talk with Lynda at our 50th high school reunion. What a meaningful life she lived! I wish I had seen Lynda more often over the years... Danae Columbus, January 23, 2022 I am so very sad to learn of Lynda’s passing. She was my hairdresser and friend for a long time - from Carrollton, to LBJ-Preston to Senior living place. We had so much fun together. I had a luncheon one time and she critiqued every guest - they loved it. So happy she had a wonderful life with you, Dan. Helen Wood, January 22, 2022 I went to school with Lynda at Lakeside. She was one of the most open & direct people I have ever known. I have great memories of her. God bless you and your families as you go through this time. Joyce Hartsell Fox, January 21, 2022 I will miss all our fun talks and laughter my dear friend…until we meet again
