I am married into the Lynn's family and met William, his sister Nadine and many more(At Lynn Family Reunions) several years ago and since have always enjoyed spending time with him. Wish I lived in the area instead of way out in Central Texas. I know we would have been good buddies. What you saw in him was the real thing as I will always remember him. I want to let William's family know even someone that has not been exposed to him much will never forget him either. God bless you all during this time and hope that he can give you all peace in knowing that he surely is with his Father. Larry Cohrs husband of Peblum Lamberth Cohrs (Lynn kid)

Dear Tammy and Family, I am so very sorry to hear about the passing of your father. I remember attending church with him at Elam so many years and how he set such a great example to many. God needed him more than us, there is no doubt in my heart that he is walking the streets of Gold in Heaven. If there is anything that I can do for any of you, I am here. May the Lord give you comfort and peace. I know he will be greatly missed. Love each of you, Ramona Wilkerson-Blalock and Family
