4/1/12~ We made it back from Portland in time for me to attend a very special tea in honor of Lynn Chase (Becca's mother-in-law, and longtime friend of our family!). Lynn's sister, Jenny, was in town, so my mom thought it would be the perfect time to have the tea! Mom did a great job putting everything together, with the help of Ann and Jincy. (I didn't realize how far back Ann and Lynn's friendship went, but Ann lived right next door to Lynn & Jenny when they were little girls. And they have been close friends ever since!) The food was delicious and we all had a nice time talking and sharing memories together. There were some sweet & sentimental moments, followed by lots of tears. Lynn has been battling cancer, and fighting hard through the ups and downs of treatment. We are all so thankful for the special times we get to share with Lynn! She is an incredible woman...so full of strength, faith & joy, even in the midst of this terrible sickness.
