Lynette taught me a great deal about being a positive, pro-active human being. As I consider the childhood time I spent with my dear friend, Sarah, I realize that both Lynette and Ben had an influence on the choices I have made as an adult, personally and professionally.

Somehow, tonight I can see Lynette and Sarah "chatting it up" in they are on a long walk.
