  15. No words to express my sorrow in reading the passing of Lynn. To Phil&family may God’s Blessing of Peace & my heartfelt prayers for you give a measure of comfort.
    Freshmen yr @MHS /we were locker mates : Donell & Donnelly. Soon a friendship thru those ups& downs of high school. Lost contact but always in my heart .
    A good friend can never be truly lost. Their energy lives on in the hearts & minds of those who loved them.
    If I shut my eyes: I can hear her warm laugh & see her beautiful smile. Since hearing the news my mind began to rewind ancient memories of days gone by & especially fond memories of the Donell family together& now they are together again.

    All Love surround you.
    The pure light within you guide your way on.

  17. Phil,
    I’m so sorry to hear this tragic news. It was so long ago that this awkward teenager met you two when you first got married and moved into your home on Park av. You both were so kind to me and I shared so many laughs with you. You were so in love and fun to be around. You made me feel like a little brother and I met Robbie and found a new great friend. My heart breaks for you and your family and will keep you in my prayers. God bless you.
