Sending deepest sympathy and prayers during this difficult time . Sincerely , Diane & Tom Musmanno

My friend Lynn, will always be remembered fondly. I met her when I first started at Merrill Lynch when I was 17 years old. Lynn was assigned to train me as a bookkeeper for the margin department in Merrill. At 17, it was great to have a friend like Lynn guiding me and teaching me a bit about growing up. She was extremely kind and very knowledgeable about our job. She was very level headed and very compassionate. She married her husband Eddie while we were at Merrill. She loved him with all her heart. I was in their wedding party and still have the beautiful cameo ring she gave her bridesmaids as their gifts. That choice of a cameo actually defined who Lynn was. She was a strong and beautiful woman who will always be remembered. I never met her daughter Megan, as our adult lives were lived in different states, but I do know that Lynn was very proud of her and adored her. I will miss you and always love you as one of my dearest friends Lynn. Forever in my heart and in my prayers.🙏
