Kara Burwell

I am a wife to Tony and a mother to Gracie and Ryker. I love my family and friends and want nothing more in life than to live it to the fullest and just be happy. Lynette was my sister in law by marriage but will always be my sister and one of my best friends. She showed me how a person fights for their life with dignity and grace while putting others before herself. That is how Lynette's Angels was continue the legacy of this beautiful soul. Helping out those in need is me living life to the fullest and definitely makes me happy!!

Emily Earnest

I am Emily Earnest and I am married to my wonderful husband Steven, together we have two boys Jayden and Brecken. 
Lynette Earnest was my Aunt.  After she passed away we all just knew we had to keep her wonderful giving spirit alive through continuing to give back, and think of others no matter what we are going through in our own lives in Lynette's honor.
I also have to give so much credit to my wonderful family who instilled in me the joy in giving back to the community.  I have discovered that the happiest people are not those getting more, but those giving more.

Bridget Kreifels

I’m Bridget, proud to be wife of husband, Nate, and a stay at home mom to Elana, Paisley and Brexton. Some of the most influential and inspirational people in my life are my parents. Constantly doing what they can to help others, even if it means making sacrifices for themselves. When I met Lynette in 2007, she quickly became one of my best friends as I saw that same heart of gold in her. Lynette was one of those people that no matter what challenge she was facing, she was always thinking about someone else and how she could make someone else smile. I am so proud to be part of Lynette’s Angels and to be carrying on her legacy through this amazing organization. She taught me to live everyday with love in my heart and a smile on my face.

Cathy Paider

Although I am not related to the Earnest family, I have been lovingly treated like family since Kara Burwell and I became friends several years ago.  I first met Lynette and Kara when my daughter started Girl Scouts in kindergarten.  Lynette was one of the leaders who enthusiastically taught the little girls all about being a Girl Scout.  Kara and I quickly became friends and she included me in a number of social gatherings and fundraisers over the years where I got to know the Earnest family better.  To put it simply, THEY ARE AMAZING, and I am blessed to have been asked to join this incredible organization!  As for me, I am most proud of being the mother to my three beautiful children, Elisa, Alex and Harrison.
