Beautiful Selfless Lynnie ... Always giving her time and love to so many.
You only had the best to say about people.... never a bad word spoken.

We shared so many fun times together especially with the era of "The Rovers", and together on the Asthma Support Group we endeavoured to give help to those that needed it. You gave me so much support in the times that I needed with my own children and their asthma and you knew I was forever grateful.
Losing your loving Craig was horrific for you both something no parent wants to experience. Now you are there with him and I can see that beautiful smile once again and that laugh.

Rest Peacefully Dear Lynnie

Our Love is with you Noel, Shiree, Wayne, Tanika and Kayla .. No words can express what you are feeling but know that so many care for you all and hold you in a Special place in their hearts. xxxxx
