To all of the Montray/Morrissey Family. Please accept my deepest condolences for your loss. Lynn will be so missed by everyone. Lynn was one of the sweetest people you will ever want to meet. We will miss you on Christmas Day Lynn, where you spent time with your sister-in-law Linda and the Bauer Family. As the years went by we shared with each other all the troubled, as well as really happy times in our lives. We shared how our Children, Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren were doing in their lives. Lynn loved her family dearly. Because we all lived in different areas around New York and other parts of the country, Christmas Day was always for catching up on the past year. I for one will miss your laughter and the greatest smile on this earth. Now there is no longer the suffering. Now you are finally at rest. Say Hi to Ed, your Mom and my Dad for me. We will miss you all always. May you Rest In Peace Lynn.
Marianne Bauer Buchanan
