Sweet Lynette loved God, family, friends and just about everyone else she met. She never met a stranger and treated everyone like family. She genuinely loved the people in her life. Lynette was kind, thoughtful and giving. She remembered every birthday, anniversary or special event for the people she loved so dearly. Lynette was a bubbly person with a sparkle in her eyes. She had a contagious laugh and a smile that could light up a room. She was our sunshine on any given day. Lynette loved flowers and walks on the beach. She touched many people in her precious life and we are so grateful to have had her in our lives. We will never forget Lynette, Mom, Granny, our Angel on earth and now in heaven. We will love her forever.
