    Dr. Bacon, I am so sorry for your loss. I can’t imagine how hard this is for you. Your wife was a very kind woman. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers. May God surround you and fill you with His Love, and may you feel comforted during this very difficult time. Much love and hugs to you, Peggy Thompson

    I am shocked and extremely saddened to read of Lynne’s passing. I was checking Facebook in an attempt to contact her and Meredith about our upcoming 50th college reunion. This was not what I expected to find. Hugs and love to all Lynne’s family and friends. I am devastated to know she is no longer in this world. Margie Lust Miller
