  1. I met Lindsey in 1967 when I transferred to the South Bay Kiwi Chapter. Her Matt is just a few days older than our son Stuart. She was absolutely charming and so very friendly. She and I shared many special times together. She will always hold a loving place in my hart. May she rest in peace.

  2. Colin – remember when we tried to make cookies from scratch (we were probably 10 yrs old)? Your Mom got home from work and walked into a kitchen devastated by two boys with flour, milk and no idea what they were doing. She smilingly entered the maelstrom and helped us “fix” the cookies. That is one of my favorite memories – she recognized the innocence of our efforts and cherished it. I’m going to miss her. -Curt

  3. Lindsey was a great lady. She was thoughtful, caring & very loving. Claude & I have fond memories of Bob & Lindsey. They are both together again. God Bless Colin, Ian & Matt. You have all been in our prayers. Love, Claude & Terry

  4. Lindsey was the sweetest of ladies. I’ll never forget her kind nature and the amazing burritos she used to make for Ian and I when we were little kids. She loved her family more than life itself. We all loved her so very much…
