    Anne, I am so sorry to hear about your loss. Without Lynn's support and guidance, I would not have been able to have my career in printing. He was often stern (even scary), but always fair, honest and willing to listen. I felt there was an unspoken connection between us, maybe our military service and overseas tours. For whatever reason, he saw something in me that I had failed to recognize in myself. He gave me the opportunity and the encouragement to succeed, and I will always be grateful to him for that. He was even there for my retirement party, which meant more to me than he would ever know. He was and will always be one of the most important people in my life. You are in my thoughts.
