Delaney’s “husband” in Addams family and good friend was a young man named Micheal Lynch. He was hit by a car going to school yesterday and is in critical condition. Please keep Delaney and The Lynch family in your prayers during this difficult time.
This was from the D&C:
Michael Lynch, 14, was struck by a car while crossing Cooper Road on Thursday. A freshman at Irondequoit High, Lynch suffered life-threatening injuries and underwent surgery at Strong Memorial Hospital on Thursday.
“Michael comes from a family of strong religious faith. The Lynch family has had their share of struggles throughout these past couple of years with the mother, Bernadette, battling cancer herself and is now faced with this nightmare.”
I am writing with some tragic news about a theater friend of Delaney’s who was hit by a car yesterday on his way to school. Michael Lynch was 14 and was critically injured from this accident. They operated and removed part of his skull to try and reduce the swelling to his brain, however it did not help and he has been declared brain dead. He also has bleeding in his lungs and a broken leg. He is on life support right now and was not expected to survive the night. He is still on life support as he will be donating his organs. This was a tragic accident to a bright, funny young man who touched many people. Michael was Delaney’s theater husband!! She is completely heartbroken as we all are for this situation. He was extremely close to his mother, who is currently undergoing treatment for Cancer. Please prayer for a wonderful family that they will find the means to find comfort during this very difficult time. Thanks, K
