    Ray and Family, Lyn was a warm, friendy and charming lady. When she was playing or sitting next at Ray’s side, it was always a pleasure to be in her company. She will certainly be missed by our entire Monday Bridge group.
    My sincere smypathy and condolences to all.

    On behalf of the Duplicate Bridge group at the Greece Community & Senior Center, I would like to express our sincere sympathies to Ray and to all of Lynn’s family.

    Lynn played in our group for years, and remained an observer until just recently. She will be missed by all of us.
