Memories & Thoughts of Kaylynn

KayLynn's death has really hit me. She was a very special person who loved to see the funny side of things. That fun side resulted in lots of fun for all of us. She was the first CC for Hall county and I know she went out of her way to find information for people who were trying to find their family there.

Kaylynn became our historian and collected some of our memories from the 'early days' of our group. You might enjoy reading through some of her collection:

I have decided to send a donation to www.USGenNet.org in memory of our fallen Lark Kaylynn. I know that she loved being here and I am sure that she will want her data safe. Whatever you can send is your choice.. I know the economy is difficult but even $5 will add together to pay part of another server bill which keeps us going. The link is right on the page and you can either send money via PayPal, a check or even cash to our Treasurer Rhoda and her address is listed there.

I know she is flapping her wing dusting off all the pages in NEGenWeb. . . . I guess it will be her version of sweeping. Sleep well my friend, you are missed.
