    I graduated a year after Lyn, but have fond memories of her. I remember she was a great basketball player.

    To Charles and the entire Whalin family,
    It’s time such as this that words fail to convey thoughts. I knew Lyn on a limited social basis. We did share common views when sharing on Facebook.

    My fondest memory is of a visit to your home with Becca. The welcome and warmth she showed a little girl left a mark on my memory.

    My hope for each of you is the sense of loss is short and the precious memories long.

    Hugs to all.

    I just learned for Lynn’s passing . I, too, have fond memories of Lynn.. Watching her play basketball for the Eagles. She was amazing and grew to be a loving and caring woman with many wonderful traits. She will be missed by all.
