Words can’t begin to explain the loss and heart ache we are feeling right now… for a third of my life she made me smile every single day. And to wake up this morning and not have her smiling back at me hurts so bad… I love you little Lynn. You will forever be a part of me. 💔💯 Nate & made a special memorial video, link in my bio.”
