    She was lost at sea and/or died during a dive off the Washington Coast 4 years ago. The dive site is a tiny island pinnacle in the Pacific Ocean and her body was never recovered.

    Four years already. Jeeze, where does the time go?

    Whenever I think of TSandM’s last dive I remember someone writing in the thread on her disappearance something like “there’s a Lynne-shaped hole in the ocean and she just slipped through it”.

    I was off the board for a number of years and came back just a few months ago.

    I was shocked and in total disbelief when I stumbled across the post of her passing. She was so involved in this board that I felt I knew her personally, better than some I actually do dive with.

    And... the irony of disappearing without a trace. I think she would have wanted people to be able to analyze and learn from her accident. Though I would like to think that it had to be a medical issue, she was just too experienced for it to be anything else.

    I remember the post where I mentioned how much they overfill tanks for cave diving. She totally didn’t believe it. Then, she posted that she was taking a cave class at Ginnie and diving with a “bomb on her back.” I laughed, and thought of going over to Ginnie just to meet her in person. I didn’t go, but now wish I had.

    Here’s that quote about the shape Lynn left in the water:
