I met Lynda at FUHS in 1959 and we were good friends. I have thought of her often over the years and tried to get in touch through Classmates and FB, but could not find her or someone who might know how to reach her. When with my old friends, Bob Smith and Nick Aversa at Lake Tahoe in late 1959, we decided that the oldie, "Earth Angel" should be her song. I am truly saddened by her passing. I wish that I could have made contact. I miss you, Lynda Lou.

I FIRST MET LYNDA IN JR. HIGH. SHE WAS SUCH A NICE PERSON, AND NEVER CHANGED THROUGH THE YEARS THAT I KNEW HER.

HER FAMILY IS IN MY THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS.
