  10. Lynn Murphy was my neighbor and a very loved friend of mine and my family.She will always be remembered no matter what shall happen.

  11. My life has been truly blessed with having this Angel named Lynn in it.I am very thankful to God,Randy, and Casey for sharing her with me.Lynn is what you can call a true friend. Every moment we spent together was clearly meant to be and made me a better person.Our time together was so short but so fulfilling for me. When God needed our Angel in Heaven it made me feel selfish for wanting her here. I wish I can have a chance to try to do for Lynn what she has done for me and my family.We will Always Love and Miss Lynn being here.But when God needed our Dustin in Heaven I knew our boy did not miss Lynn anymore.And I know someday I will not miss them. And our LOVE will be FOREVER!YOUR’S TRULY!
