    I will forever remember Lynn’s beautiful smile and the warmth of her words. She was a truly lovely woman, and a treasured friend of Lasell College.

    Lynn was such a bright light – with an infectious smile, an infectious, positive attitude about everything. Her toughness was measured by her warmth – just a really nice, caring, bright human being. It was a joy to be around her, and I’ll miss her. Lasell will miss her.

    I was so sorry to hear of Lynn’s death. She was such a special person and made us all feel special too. She will be missed by so many of us. Her happiness and loyalty was always evident at any event or meeting held at Lasell that we attended.

    Lynn had become a very special friend to me over the last few years on our drives to Lasell for out meetings and events. I will greatly miss our talks and her company. She was such a special and caring woman.
