My Dearest Henry & Chris
I was devastated when I heard about Lynda.  She was a very special lady.  She always seemed to make me chuckle! I will always remember her doing my mothers hair and the angel I received when she passed.  The rides you and Lynda took with the golf cart; just stopping in when I was working in the yard to see how everything was going.  Please Henry continue to stop in whenever you are out and about.  I just want you to know that I am praying for you and your family.  May God wrap his arms around you and hold you. 
With all my Love Kelly Fanning
