  • Worked with Lynn at CORC in the late 70’s – early 80’s. My thoughts and prayers go out to all the family and friends.

  • I am so sad to hear that Pug is no longer with you. I know we lost touch in recent years but I will always remember her as a very good friend who helped me when I badly needed help. Please accept my condolences and good thoughts.
