I feel so lucky to call Lynne family. My sister Mattie married her son Alex back in December of 2019 and Lynne came all the way to Texas for the wedding. I was fortunate enough to to get to spend some time with her while she was here. I may not know much about her but I do know that she was so kind and full of grace. She immediately felt like family. It was so wonderful to get to witness her big blue eyes beaming for the whole wedding and how happy she looked dancing with Alex. She and Steve were sweet as can be. Not only with each other but with everyone around them. Even when we were setting up the day of the wedding, lending a helping hand wherever they found that one might be needed. She had an infectious laugh and glowing smile. She will forever be remembered and missed.

I have been lucky to know Lynne since a visit to us in London many years ago. She and Steve have always been such wonderful friends. I have very fond memories of times spent together in Remuera and Wellington. It is so tragic that Lynne, who so enjoyed and lived life to the full was cut short. Love to Steve, Alex and Christine.

Dearest Lynne
Thank you for being a friend ...
We became best friends when we lived apart and we remained like that throughout our friendship - apart but together.
You were all the best things about friendship. You were interested yet unobtrusive, you were consistent, reliable, supportive, helpful and bothered.
You put the energy and life into our relationship - always there through the bumps and scrapes.
I’m going to miss you like mad, but I’m truly grateful to have the memories and the lessons and the sweet moments that accumulate over the lifetime of a rare and precious thing; an enduring friendship xxx

I met Lynnie exactly one year ago when I got stranded in Airlie Beach as a tourist during the first corona lockdown. Soon there's been a bond between us and we felt not only like friends but a bit like sisters in a quite challenging time.
A few days before I managed to get on one of the last flights back to Germany Lynnie and I had made a deal. We promised each other to meet again this year and go on a boat trip together.
It wasn't meant to be.
Instead I have to say good bye now to a very special friend who I will always remember.
My thoughts are with her, with you Steve, and with all her family.

Our time together had lots of highlights and fond memories that I will carry for ever.
Thank you for being in my life joirney and being a wonderful mother to our son.

Dearest Lynne,
Thankyou for everything you brought to my life. I can not tell you how much I will miss talking to you. Each week that I saw you, you would teach me something new. You taught me how to cope as a mum, and were full of advice that I would take on knowing it was coming from a woman I respected and looked up to so much. I loved hearing about your life and your holidays away on the boat. I looked forward to our time together so much. I love you Lynne, and will miss you desperately. You are forever in my heart. Your friend, Lou xxx

Dear Steve,
It is with great sadness that we learned of Lynne's passing after a very long and excruciating illness.
During the purchase and delivery of your the Bénéteau 46, what wonderful times we had together!
She was a lovely lady to us, always in a good mood and full of humor.
We extend to you affectionately, kindly and sadly our most sincere condolences.
Love,
Caroline and Jean
