RIP Lynn Gomez, 1947-2008

Lynn Gomez's laugh was memorable. A rich, raspy quality. She wore red, high-heeled shoes. She was an artist.

And I remember Lynn loved riding her bike.

I got to know Lynn Gomez when we both worked in the business department of the Sun-Sentinel newspaper in Fort Lauderdale in 1998-99. I reported the business of sports and Lynn was responsible for the graphic presentation of the section.

Lynn was a fun friend, who enjoyed life with a flair. She was a damn good graphic artist and one tough broad.

Lynn passed away yesterday from cancer. She was 61.

Her greatest achievement, as listed on her memorial web site?

A 100-mile bicycle ride.
