  1. CandleImageJust learned of Lynne’s passing and wanted to say I have never known a better person than Lynne Moore. From the early days of our lives, I have loved her with all my heart. She was my childhood sweetheart and one of the closest friends I have ever had, She was kind, giving, loving, and she loved her family with all her heart. She is the only person I have ever known that never, ever, got mad at me, and for that, she deserved a medal. I remember the days we would get out of school and ride horses and could be found in the barn and we were all of 10. We talked on the phone all night long, I traveled with Anna Mary and her to Augusta to visit family more than one time, and although we took different paths in life, we remained close to each other all throughout our lives, I could never find a better friend, from the beginning til the end and I believe she is with Jesus now, and I will see her again, she is now at peace, and I thank God for that. I will always hold Lynne close to my heart and I pray for her brother and children as i write this, now Lynne rests in peace after a long horrible road of illness. I pray this bring the family peace, as I know she would want it too, God bless each one of you and know that she was loved by more folks than you will ever know….

    • Hello Cassie
      Janet told me your mom died. I’m so sorry. I do understand. My 96 yr old mother has had alzimers/dementia for over 2 decades. It’s been so difficult to understand Gods plan.
      She is in a memory unit in assistant living in Jax.$7000. a month to live there. I would lv some closure.she hasn’t known me for over a decade. I’m the only living member of my family. Who would have known. Lots of therapy.
      I’m so sorry for your pain Cassie. I hear staying in the day helps. Some. I’m so glad u have a large family to lean on. My thoughts and prayers are w/ u Jennifer

  2. CandleImageI have very fond memories of Lynne, especially in high school. She was always smiling and was such a sweet person. We saw each other at gatherings throughout the years, and we would pick up where we left off. Phil and family, please know that you all are in my thoughts and prayers.

  3. CandleImageSince I was born 4 months after Lynne and the only 2 girls, we would spend the night at grandmothers to get away from our younger brothers and play with our barbies that we left at her house. We were more like sisters. She experienced life so much earlier than I, as I was outside the delivery room when she had her first baby. Our paths were different but we still came together to celebrate and share. She always seemed stronger and loved by so many and I have missed Her for some time now.

  4. I’m so sorry to hear about Lynne. Sending thoughts and prayers to the family, to brother, Phil and cousins, Kathy and brothers. Ginn Alford Smith

  5. I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Lynne. We had many good times in Augusta when she visited her grandparents along with Chris and Phil.

    Prayers especially for you Phil at this time.

  6. CandleImageI knew Lynn too briefly. I am grateful that you brought her to dinner, Cassie, because I saw immediately how gentle and loving a woman she was. I wish I had been privileged to know her all my life. To have such a friend would have been a treasure.

    I’m glad she had a daughter who was so devoted to her. You have been able to return great love because you received great love. Sons and daughters are our treasures. You and Anthony can take comfort knowing you were unfailing in your love of your dear mother.

    May God bless and comfort you both.

  7. CandleImageCassie,
    I am so sorry. Thank you for letting me know. The care you and your brother gave her was such a gift. You and Anthony are in my prayers. I love you.
    Janet

  8. CandleImageCassie, I loved Lynne so much. She was always like a sister to me. I will truly miss her for the rest of my life. You know I love you too; don’t ever forget. I want to stay in touch with you and know how you are doing. If there is anything I can do for you please don’t hesitate to call. As big of a loss this is to me, I know it’s fifty times bigger for you and Anthony. Just always know that you are never alone. AND – GOD promised that He would never leave you nor forsake you.

  9. Cassie & family,
    So sorry for the loss of your Mom. I know you loved her very much. Her spirit lives on in you & I know she is at peace now. I send love, healing, & hope during your time of grieving..

  10. CandleImageCassie I am so sorry for your loss. You have been an amazing daughter to the very end. I cannot imagine what this has been like for you and your family. You are in my thoughts and prayers. If you need anything please let me know. Xoxo

  11. It was a privilege to have Lynne be a part of my life and be able to care for her during a hard part of her life. I loved to make her laugh. She would get to laughing so hard we would both be crying. Everyone else in the room would start laughing because her laugh was so contagious. Lynne was my favorite.
    I look forward to seeing her again one day. She has gone ahead of us and will be waiting.

  12. Dear Cassie, thank you for letting me know. My thoughts are with you and your brother. What a lovely woman she was to have raised such a sweet daughter. Sending you peace, love and hugs.

  13. Sweet Cassie and Anthony. Your mom was a beautiful friend and I cherish every minute that we spent together. We moved across the street from her when I was 1. We grew up together and always stayed in touch. She loved you two so much and always giggled when she spoke about you both. Her laugh was my favorite. I know you both took excellent care of her and no mother could ask for more. I wish you both the very best. I loved your mom to the moon and back and she will always have a very special place in my heart. May God wrap his arms around your family at this sad time and may Lynne rest in peace from this dreaded disease. Please give my condolences to Phil.

    • My heart is heavy with the loss of my sweet cousin.
      Her positive influence on my life, started as far back as I can remember.
      Visiting the Holbert house, was always special for me. Riding up with Cliff “Papa” Brooks, was always a vacation.
      Hot wheels and LEGO’s with Anthony. Popcorn, movies and treats newly discovered. Adults playing cards.
      New life with Cassie in the mix. What a wonderful gift to us all.” Especially for Cliff “.
      Phil, Anthony, Cassie and all who where fortunate to be touched by Lynn, my thoughts are of you all.

  14. Lynne was my sister, Susan’s, best friend growing up. We lived across the street from her family. She was just a sweetheart. She was tiny but tough as nails! She had a great laugh! I babysat all the Moore children and both Lynne and Kathy were so sweet. From what I’ve heard the horrible disease did not take away her beautiful spirit. Rest in peace sweet Lynne.

  15. CandleImageCassie,
    Extending deep and heartfelt sympathy to you and your family. May the peace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with you.

    Respectfully,
    Green and Company Massage Studio

  16. CandleImageAnthony and Cassie,
    Your mom was a true gift, always smiling, always cheerful and just a real pleasure to be around. she loved everyone and everyone that knew her loved her too.
    Quiet and shy but with a spirit of sweetness and laughter that would fill a room and the hearts of the people in it the instant she walked in. She was everyone’s little sister and she will be missed by so many whose lives she touched.
    Be assured she suffers no more, she is at peace now.
    She and your aunt Martha were best of friends their whole lives, they would spend hours on the phone together, and I’d bet they are having tea and talking about the “good old days” right now.
    May GOD shower you both and the entire family and all of Lynne’s friends with his blessings.
    Love you both,
    Uncle Mike

  17. CandleImageTo : Phil, Anthony, Cassie, Carrie, and the extended Moore family
    I am sending my deepest condolence for the loss of your loving sister, precious mother and grandmother; Lynne. Thank you, Phil; for introducing me to your family. It was on Thanksgiving Day of 1989, that your dear late mother and grandmother; Annie Mary, had family and friends over for dinner. How grateful I was to meet Lynne, who would become my girlfriend of 31 years. It was then, that Lynne introduced me to you children, Anthony and Cassie. I will cherish forever being a part of the fond memories we made together, especially during the weekends and holidays. Thank you, Anthony and Cassie; for bringing your sweet mother to my home in NC for a couple of weeks in 2012. Lynne and I got to spend a special time together. I want to extend my love and care to each of you, in sharing your mother with me. Although I cannot be with you today, I want you to know I am with you in spirit and heart. I am praying for you to find comfort in knowing, that your beloved mother and sister is in Heaven awaiting for you. Lynne, Rest in Peace. Always, My Dear Friend; until we meet again.
