  • Our condolences to you Sandy and your whole family

  • OMG! Lucy was one of those people who was never going to pass away … always there, always smiling, always finding the best in everyone and loving her family so much … I can’t think of the world being without her! Or her chicken casserole she made so many times for church luncheons … and her genuine kindness and humility. What a love!
    So many will miss her so deeply – especially her grand children of who she was so proud. Heaven will be blessed to have her there while so many of us will miss her here – but boy, the world was surely better, more loving, more gracious for her presence – a presence which linger for a long time among those who knew her.

  • Sandy and Family,

    Our condolences on Lucy’s passing. She was always a bright smile and a friendly hello whenever we were in church. Your choice of photos is perfect as that is the lovely face I remember. Keeping you all in our prayers.

    David & Maryann
