    Sending my sympathy to Lindsey's loved ones and her beloved Keadyn and Roscoe. I met Lindsey in an online support group and we bonded over our health woes and sense of humor. I loved her stories and hoped to meet up one day in person even though she found it funny I wanted to roadtrip through Iowa. I will miss her and will think of her every time I have a crazy work story. I'll probably hear her laughing in heaven. 

    Until we meet again, Lindsey

    I am so incredibly heartbroken for Keadyn. I know they had a great relationship, and he was her world. Lindsey was a great friend and will be missed by many. She had a way of connecting with people. We had been friends for 19yrs. I know she is in a better place watching down on all of us but wish she was still her for Keadyn.

    Linds and I had several ups and downs but the memories we shared were so much more than anything. Im so grateful that we reconnected but so sad that we did not get to carry out the plan we had. I am going to miss her and miss us laughing at stupid bat jokes and june bugs. We all know how much she hated June bugs. Rest in Peace girl and until we see each other again always remember we will always have the DAFR’s! Love ya girl!
