    Pat & Girls –My condolences on your loss. I am grateful to have had Dr. Lincoln as my much admired and respected boss at Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s Health Division. He had a positive impact on the molding of my work ethic during those early years of my career at ORNL. He was tough when needed, but he also had a marvelous sense of humor!

    Pat and family – My thoughts and prayers are with you and the family. I was on my way to Oak Ridge for the June 1 luncheon for the ’50’s ORHS classes when I learned Dr. Lincoln had passed away. I lost Roy last Dec 23 and the intervening months have been challenging. Again, my deepest sympathy for your loss.

    Pat, Cindy, Karen,

    I have many happy memories of visiting your house and hearing your dad’s music. He always had a smile and a laugh for all of us “girls” who visited your home! My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
