I am shocked and saddened to hear of the death of your husband Lynn. My deepest sympathy to you and your children.
Though we haven’t been in touch recently, mostly because of my friend and your Mothers passing,I don’t get much news from Yarmouth anymore.
Meredith did hear this and knew I would want to contact you and your family as our families went back a long way and shared many good memories in our Yarmouth days. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. Elsie Greene

Dear Lynn, Laurie, Gregory and Family
So sorry to hear George passed away i am heartbroken.
Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers.
I will forever cherish the memories we shared over the years, visiting on summer vacations spending good times with the family and friends, being at the camp was always very special.
George was surely a gem of a soul, full of life and a big heart, will truly be missed.
My Condolences, Love Petra
