    Lynette was my best friend for many years. A true confidant. We had so many laughs together.. She loved to watch Christmas movies! She loved my kids as if they were her own grandchildren. We were at her house practically every day for 3 years straight. I will always remember her laugh and her quick smile. Her birthday is the same day as my anniversary.. We would always call each other at the same time and wish each other well. I will miss her more than words can say. Until we meet again. ♥️

    It’s been a long time since Lynette and I connected, but I always will remember the fun times we had at Westgate CoC and our day trip to Jennings to have lunch with her dad. Lynette was a Christian first, wife and mother second, and crazy friend third. She splashed joy on anyone who got near her! She will be missed. Jackie Holton
