Lynnette and I met in the 4th became good friends, we walked home from school together almost every day, when I moved away she was one friend I missed the most. I will always cherish the friendship we had. She will be missed from a lot of people. She was a very strong person back then and grew into a very beautiful and even stronger person before she passed. Lynnette may your memories live on until we all see you again.

Oh, Lynette! We had us some good times, didn’t we? We saw the most beautiful things together—waterfalls, botanical gardens, sunsets. I will always cherish our friendship, our trips, our adventures. Remember when we got lost in that preserve near Broken Bow? We laughed all night once we made it back to town. You were one of a kind. Love you always my friend!

I was so stunned that I didn’t realize it was Lynnette. I left a message here before this one that makes no sense. All I can say is my heart is broken and I am so sorry for your loss. Lynette was such a good friend in school and then later on Facebook. She was always so happy and beautiful and funny. She was an amazing person. Prayers for you all and your tremendous loss.

I have no words that can describe the hurt in my heart. The world just lost a beautiful soul but Heaven gained an angel. I will love and miss you forever my sweet friend!

Lynnette was a wonderful 'life long' friend and beautiful person. I have so many fond and fun memories of our times spent together. From Soccer games on Saturday mornings to Slumber Parties and time spent in the "movie start" bathroom while wrapping ourselves up in saran wrap to loose weight. Many nights listening to music in her bedroom and making up a crazy dance routine with spoons to the song 'The Little Drummer Boy.' A routine that NEVER left her room because of our embarrassment. The way she begged her dad for things, never giving up until he said 'Yes.' I loved that...Saturday mornings being woke up by 'Captain' the talking bird....Great memories that many might forget, but to me they are so much a part of who I am. I am so very sorry for the journey you are on now. Living life without your precious 'Lynnnette'...Words will never offer the amount of comfort needed, but instead knowing just the impact of her life to all and how she lived life to the fullest, will provide peace to all. She was a wonderful reflection of her family and she had and lived a wonderful life.
