“I’ll never forget after they grab the whole family and told us all to come in basically to come see her kind of in a way where you know where it was to come say our goodbyes, ” her boyfriend said.
Lynn and her boyfriend are warning others about staying cautious on trails and taking a walking stick to scare away any snakes that might be on a path.
“She’s a warrior and she fought through,” her boyfriend added.
