Lynne and Al liked to travel, spending time with family and friends and taking care of their gardens and yard. Lynne and Al liked to take cruises, finding adventures in places they have never been. Whether they were taking family vacations or traveling to see family and friends, they always enjoyed every trip. Lynne devoted her time to her mother-in-law, Floris Sledge, by taking her to appointments, grocery shopping for Floris and just visiting her.
