      Dear Toby ,Darcy, Quentin and Judy.

      I’ve only recently heard that Lynette has died. I’m so sorry and sad for your loss.

      Lynette was a quite extraordinary woman.

      During her days in Orewa she made a mark in the community and with those close to her. Always ready to listen and offer comforting counsel.

      I’m sure you will all miss her terribly.
      She was a good friend to me. X
