I am David Dunn, Lynn Chester's son, the youngest of Moms three sons. I would like to express my gratitude to my family,and everyone for the heartfelt messages all you have posted. As I expressed at the funeral on Saturday, thank all of you for the love, caring, and compassion you gave my Mom. Again thank you Chuck and all the caregivers for all the help, support, and love you gave to my Mom over the years, especially during a time help was needed to make through needed back surgeries and Moms hip replacement surgery. I know how much Mom loves all of you, as I know how much I love my Mom. I will miss her every day, but have comfort in knowing she is free from the back pain she had. May God bless all of you and give you happiness and joy.

I just want to say how awesome Linda was and how much fun we had together. We both loved horses and loved to ride together. She is a very special person. I would visit her at her house and she would come to visit me. She was of course in Raleigh and I lived in Atlanta. In earlier times my husband worked for Delta Airlines and I could fly free and in first class space available. So we were able to visit often. Since there is no space available now, I haven't been able to visit her in a long time..We had such fun together so long ago..Time flys away so quickly!
I miss her. She is a very vibrant and beautiful person. I will be praying for Chuck who always loved her and her wonderful sons who will miss her so much.

Love,
Susan

I am Linda's older and only brother. We lived on 20 acres of land and were
blessed to have a variety of animals to enjoy. But our favorite animals were horses.
We spent many hours together riding. I think Linda carried her love for
riding throughout her entire life. (I finally gave it up for motorcycles!)
I am thankful that she is at peace.
God Bless Chuck for his unwavering devotion. Our thoughts and prayers are with he and her boys.

May you rest in peace. During your time on Earth, you were well loved by many -- none more so than my Uncle Chuck Fuller who devoted his time, money, caring and stability in your life. Without Uncle Chuck's complete devotion to you, your arduous journey would have been unbearable. May your spirit be filled with joy of having had love in your life for so long. Ride free, Lynn, your days of suffering are past.

Your pathway through life was not an easy one. You experienced stumbling blocks and barriers that made your journey one of difficulty. For whatever reason unknown to us
God gave you this pathway---you persevered and finished your race. Today you are free of physical pain and mental anguish. You have thrown off the shackles of mortality and entered an existence of pure love and joy forever. Rest easy, Lynn. You are no longer bound by your earthly bondage. Ride like the wind!

Our sincere condolences to Lynn's boys and to Chuck. Lynn was a sweet and gentle soul. I have fond memories of weekends on Topsail with she and Chuck in the early 2000's. May she rest in peace and her family be comforted in the knowledge that she was truly taken care of by a good man during her illness. Elaine and Bill Koester

My deepest sympathies go out to you and your family. Lynn had such a beautiful smile and she was blessed to be cared for by my dad, Chuck Fuller for the past 10 years. I remember the first time meeting Lynn as she was horseback riding which she loved. It was so special how much love and care she received from her close friend Chuck. Prayers for strength during this most difficult time.

Rest in peace, Lynn. May you have the same nurturing care by the angels that my Uncle Chuck Fuller gave to you so many years on earth. Uncle Chuck was your earthly angel _ now he passes the torch to your heavenly angel. You’ve given up your earthly bonds of physical and mental anguish to put on new heavenly raiment’s of peace, joy and love _ free from all pain. May your soul be blessed with eternal joy.

We are deeply saddened by the loss of your mom. Lynn will be truly missed and may the Lord comfort you and your family at this time of grief. For the past 10 years she was cared for by my dad, Chuck Fuller. He spent so much time with Lynn and cared for her and always made sure she had all she needed to be able to remain in her home until this past year. I will always have wonderful memories of Lynn and I know she was blessed to have Chuck Fuller included in her life.

My wife, Jamie, and I send our condolences on the passing of Linda Chester. She was our neighbor, part of our little cul-de-sac community, for many, many years. We had many nice chats in the yard. We also appreciated all our friend Chuck Fuller did to help her for so long. We hope all who loved her and will miss her will find some comfort in knowing she's at peace now.

I met Lynn in 1977 and we shared being single, lunches out, and riding horses. My fondest memory is taking our horses and husbands to Long Beach NC for a week end ride. I miss riding with her.
