Mrs. Lynch. Her name forever. I could never call her Jan. She was one of those moms who all of the neighborhood kids looked up to. She was spunky. passionate, and loved life. I have so many stories to tell about our time growing up in the neighborhood.
When my mom's illness hit in 2000 "Mrs. Lynch" was the one friend who was there for her, never left her side, and was there until she passed. You have no idea how much this meant to me. True friendship.
My life moved on to marriage and kids. She kept up with me. I would get calls from her several times a year. These unexpected calls always made me smile. She was always happy. It made me feel so good that she was always there and thinking about me.
She was one of the most incredible people I ever knew.
I take her love of life forward.
