 Hello....I want to express my sincere sympathy for the loss of your loved one and share a hope promised in the Bible. "The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life." (John 5:28, 29) With the loss of your loved one I hope you can make a little time to study the Bible for yourself. I hope that seeing the promise for yourself, and making this resurrection hope your very own, can give you some genuine comfort during this difficult time. Thank you for reading my message.

 What a kind and loving man. There has been no sweeter man on the face of this Earth. As I sit her preparing to come pay my respects I think back to the first day we met and how he made me feel comfortable in a bad situation. He was truly loved and appreciated by all he met. I love you Rog! Fly high my friend. Oh and one last thing, that was before my time...lol. Only you will understand.

 Mr. Lynn was such an uplifting, caring, funny, witty, and special man. I wish I had got to spend more time with him since high school. I am very lucky that I have had the opportunity to run into him several times and he always had time to chat and give a hug. Mr. Lynn will be greatly missed by all! R.I.P.
