    Condolences to Chuck, the family and many friends on the passing of Lynda. We all graduated from NHHS-CLASS OF 1963. I remember Lynda & her family as very friendly & welcoming people. I knew her late brother, Mickey. I had the pleasure of going to their house when we were all very young, going to New Hanover and Wilmington College. I remember "Chuckie" as a very good athlete, friendly & a friend. May God comfort all who mourn her passing & celebrate her wonderful life. Carl Miller
