So very sorry to lose Lynda. I have so many wonderful memories of being with Lynda and playing music in the "Hayloft Frolic" on our USO Tours. I cherish the times we spent together, also with Richard, at the Garrison Restaurant on Sunday brunches reliving our memories and just spending good times together. RIP Lynda.

Lynda and Richard allowed us to work with them on repairing and maintaining their musical equipment over the years. Lynda was so knowledgeable that we ended up learning something new about her instruments or the music community every time they came in. Her contributions to the steel guitar community has helped sustain the continuing growth of pedal, lap and console steels. She will be missed as will their music.

The entire Arthur family sends their condolences to Richard and the family.

I have had the great pleasure of playing music with Lynda and Richard Wright since they moved to Indianapolis. I have fond memories of the times that we rehearsed music together and enjoyed fellowship at their home. We played together at the Hilton Garden Inn and the Indy Steel Guitar Club in Greenwood. Linda will be sadly missed by myself and many others.
