I am so sorry to hear of Lynn's passing. She was a loved member of our Healing Touch practice group. I much admired the grace and courage with which she traveled her journey with MS. May she rest in peace.

I met Lynn a few years ago when we both attended a Pilates class at the Swedish MS Center in Seattle. We were only slight acquaintances but sometimes chatted as we walked to our cars after class. I am so, so sorry to hear of Lynn's passing. I knew that she wasn't doing well, and we missed her in class. Please accept my condolences for your loss.

Dear Lynn hired me at Las Encinas Hospital as the director of education in 1980 She was the utmost most supportive director I ever worked for. There was great team work under her and we are all still socializing 35 yrs later thanks to her. She allowed me to work from home a couple of days being a new mam; what a creative idea in 1982! Now it is common practice thirty years later. During that time she was also dealing with the loss of her husband and yet her generosity was so transparent. She is a friend that I will dearly miss and she instilled great values of generosity and caring for the rest of my life despite her own challenges. She gave me Sarah's car seat once Sarah had the right age not to need the car seat. I also remember our trip with the Las Encinas trip to Big Bear Mountain where she had to put chains on her car while I was pregnant. She put those chains on in the middle of a snow storm without a problem.... and then I got so nauseated from my pregnancy that 5 hours later she drove me back to Pasadena without any complaints! That is the definition of the Lynn I know: adversity is just an opportunity to find a solution.! I miss her and was supposed to have dinner with her tonight with her Las Encinas friends. Her sense of humor was extraordinary! Anna
