“I can’t thank you enough for your spectacular performance as Mary Lincoln.  So authentic that you felt as if she were really and truly there. I also loved and appreciated that you were so gracious to go around and visit with attendees at the tables. You are a library programmer's dream and consummate professional.”

— Linda Mulford, Adult Program Coordinator, "An Afternoon Tea with Mrs. Lincoln," Arlington Heights Memorial Library

On the occasion of Lincoln’s 200th birthday in February, 2009, The Daily Herald wrote, “Actor Lynn Rymarz, portraying Mary Todd Lincoln, entertains a packed house Thursday at the Arlington Heights Library with funny and heartfelt stories through the eyes of Mrs. Lincoln.”
