Lynn worked for me at Invisible and later when I ran Perimeter Technologies. Lynn was a fantastic person. She always had a positive spirit. She hardly ever complained and just did her job the best she could. I always appreciated Lynn and her contribution. She will be missed by me and those who worked with her.

I was so sorry to hear about Lynn's passing.   I was fortunate to have known her when she worked at Perimeter - she was so welcoming and friendly when I first started there in 2016.    Really made me feel as though I was a part of everything.    My thoughts and prayers go out to all of her family and friends.
