    To all the loving Family and Friends may I offer my sympathy in the painful loss of your dear Lucicle. She lived a life of giving to the little children and will be long-remembered by those who knew and loved. Hopefully you will be comforted by the following Bible Verses: Isaiah25:8 “HE WILL ACTUALLY SWALLOW UP DEATH FOREVER AND THE SOVEREIGN LORD JEHOVAH WILL CERTAINLY WIPE THE TEARS FROM ALL FACES”

  2. Please accept John’s and my deepest sympathy for the loss of Lucille. I remember loving to hear her laugh, and we are so grateful that she and Aunt Tattie were with us the day we got married. She was a wonderful person and will be missed.

  3. Janis and family, please accept my sincere sympathies. Your Mom was such a great lady. I know she and my Mom are already having a blast up in Heaven. Can you imagine the fun they’re going to have! Enjoy all the wonderful memories she left behind.

  4. Will always remember your Mother’s beautiful smile. Never saw her without it!
