Sally Lynn was loved by so many and in her 29 days here on earth she was able to bring unity and love to thousands with her story of love, strength and faith. Her 29 days changed the lives of her parents forever by teaching how relationships can grow closer, forgiveness can happen, and unity as one in Christ can produce so much more love. A celebration of life will be held at a later date and will be posted on her page Sally Lynn Fights, We Fight. She didn’t lose this fight, she won Jesus Christ and that is victory.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to a foundation that Sally Lynn’s parents are setting up in her name to provide a place to stay and meals for families whose children are hospitalized.
Arrangements are under the direction of Elmore Funeral Home, Moorefield.
