Lynes article evokes raves



I thank Virginia Norton for her excellent article about Shirley Lynes that appeared in the March 3 Religion section.

Ms. Lynes is serving a mission in Russia for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She is a wonderful example to us all. I hope I can have that much energy and courage when I reach her age.

I am sure her children and grandchildren will enjoy hearing about her experiences. Perhaps you would consider reporting on how she is doing in a few months and upon her return.

I would like to add that the church Ms. Lynes belongs to should be cited by its full name: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints; or the shortened version: The Church of Jesus Christ. "Mormon" is a nickname and should not be used to refer to the church...
