Dear Barb, Laurie Eisenhauer passed the word to those of use who formally worked at BPL about Lynn's passing. I am so sorry to hear this loss. She was so young. I do remember her as a high school and college age person and she really was all that is written in this obituary. I am so very sorry for you and her whole family.
