My Dad and uncle Norman loved their Sunday visits with each other. Norm would came over visit, fish, and sometimes play pool and cot hole. He was very competitive at everything! And he won most of the time!(which didn\'t make my competitive Dad very happy) They we\'re great brothers so different but alike in many ways. Both loving and caring best Dads ever! Would do anything for anyone.
We all loved you Uncle Norman and the Great Lady you made our Aunt Barb.
Thanks for all the little things and all your knowledge.
We love you Donna

Uncle Nick was my gentle uncle who made sure all the Lynch Clan gatherings were the best possible for everyone. In our family filled with love starting with PapPaw and MamMaw (Amos Sr and Zoe) Lynch. Amos Lynch Jr and Mary Robbins Lynch, my dear and loving parents spent many celebrations with everyone on the porch, or in the yard, or at the house, even when we moved to Pennsylvania and many miles had to be travelled for a visit. Donna, it has been many years since we shared a hug, but know I\'m sending hugs n love on behalf of Dad and Mom, Kathy (now deceased) and me. You are in our thoughts as we pray for blessings for each of you as you remember your dear Dad, and Mom today.

Uncle Norman used to show up at mine and the kids house when we first got that place and he would work on my yard 2 or 3 times a week. If he wasn't cutting stumps from the yard he was working on my lawn mower. I think he single handedly cleared my whole yard of stumps.
I still miss his Sunday visits to Papaw's when he would come in and visit and then hit the pond fishing.
He was a great Uncle and I cherish all of our talks and my memories of him.
My thoughts and prayers are with you Donna. Love you

Norman was such a nice fellow to be around. Many years ago, when we first moved across the road from his house, and I was just a youngster, I met Norman. He told me he had a pool table in his basement and asked if I would come over and play some pool with him once in a while. We sure played a lot of games of 8 ball and rotation during those next years. I am sure he has found his peace. Sincere condolences to all the family.

Uncle Nick was a precious, good man who always made me feel loved and comfortable when at his home visiting he and Barbara. He was the kind called "salt of the earth" and it was a privilege to know him. I will miss his kind, gentle soul and know that he has found a wonderful Heavenly home. Sending sincere condolences and love, Ruthie ( your niece through Barbara's sister, Lorraine)
