In Memoriam of Christy Lynch
Christy Lynch lost her battle to cancer in the evening on July 30th, 2015. She was an amazing person who meant the world to many people. She will forever be missed. This is the one of the many ways we chose to celebrate someone who gave it all to every life she touched.
You’re only truly gone if you are forgotten… and she is one person, who will never be forgotten.
Dave Calzaretta wrote the following about her passing:
“So I have largely remained silent the past few days, but here it goes (this is long, but it needs to be for my own heeling and should you choose to read it in it’s entirety it will give you insight into the last few hours of Christy’s time on Earth)…
Yesterday, the World lost one of the good ones, my dear friend Christy Lynch. I think it is important to note that I didn’t say that I lost her, but the World lost her. Christy’s spirit, love and affection transcended just one person and touched everyone she came into contact with. We have worked together in one form or another since 2008. Our friendship started a few years prior to that when she regularly would attend Maggie Speaks shows. Because of her outgoing personality, we asked her to head up our street team and take pictures and gather emails at our shows. She did such a good job that we hired her on to handle our marketing and promotions on a part time basis later that year. She is probably one of the only “part-time” workers that actually put in close to 40 hours a week though. She was that dedicated. Then in April of 2014, we made the leap of her coming on into the office as the Director of Operations for Maggie Speaks and Magnificent Events. We worked side by side in the office. Her title was basically code for “Dave, whatever we need to get done, I will figure it out.”
