Thank you for being such an inspiration, and for laying the foundations for Black People in Medway. Medway African and Caribbean Association would not exist but for your vision and inspiration

I can remember the first time I met Mrs. Lynch
She was just like her daughter Michele loving kind and beautiful. She take part in one of our church NTCOG programs she was amazing. She dress like a real Jamaican on that day. She blend in with all the ladies at the church you would think that she was a part of that group. The good thing is she was a part of the family of God.
May her soul rest in peace .
Love from the Bartholomew family.

My dearest sister Ludy,
It saddens me to know that you are no longer with us, but God saw that he needed another angel and chose you. I will miss our frequent conversations and laughter. I will miss hearing your voice. I will never forget your love, your kindness, your prayers, and support. Peace be with you Ludy. Rest well.

Love always,
Your sister, Pearl

Dear Mom, we are deeply sorry to see you leave us so soon. So many lessons taught, great memories and fun times over many years together. Thank you for everything, for so much more than I could ever put into words, but you already knew that. I promise to diligently complete all of your final wishes as I promised I would!

All your hard work is now finished, and may you always have a peaceful place in Heaven.

Rest sweetly in peace dear Mom, rest sweetly in peace...

Grantley (Junior), Claire, our two children (daughter and son) and our dog (Sir Osred).

For the past thirty plus years, I was privileged to observe Ludy’s performance, and engaged in many hours of discussion about her voluntary community work. That’s how I know, by her words and deeds, she is an awesome force…for good.
Hatshepsut, Asantewa, Candice, Nzingha, Sojourner Truth, Harriet Tubman, Nanny; just a few names that spring to my mind whenever I think of Ludy Lynch. She exemplified the spirit of these great ancestors. What has these ladies got in common?
A very strong sense of purpose; determination; fortitude and resilience.
Ludy has always displayed a determination to improve the plight of humanity. One of the things that she focused on is equity for the disadvantaged. She might not achieve her goal; but it is not for want of trying. She toiled selflessly and tirelessly! Now her toil on earth is ended; she must return to the source from whence she came; to be reunited with the ancestors, and reap her well-earned reward…everlasting peace.

It is time to pause and show honour as we reflect and recall the cherished moments and experiences of our journey together with Ludy .Space and words are not enough to express the love , memories and impact of a life well lived .Ludy joined Nurses Association of Jamaica UK in 1981 until her sad passing. Her compassion, care ,gentleness, honesty and dedication shone through in all she did. As a devoted senior midwife Ludy would go the extra mile for the mothers ,babies and staff. Her Christian faith and love for God was central in all she did We will miss her dearly, but confidently hold on to hope that she is resting in the Lord. Her memory lives on in those she loved and those who loved her. May God comfort her wonderful family and give them strength at difficult times. Rest in Peace in the presence of the Lord. Thank You for the memories.
