    Bill, Kim and Family, Lynn was an unbelievably wonderful person who I enjoyed working with for many years. She was an inspiration and a mentor to me at Britthaven Northchase as she blazed the trail for Activity Professionals across the state and the nation. She will be truly missed by those of us whose lives she touched everyday. Angie Barr
