To Aunt Lucille's family, May God comfort you in this time of sorrow. May you feel His presence in the days and weeks ahead. Wish I could be there with you at the service, but know you are in my thoughts and prayers. One of my first memories of Aunt Lucille was preparing to be her flower girl at her wedding.

Lucille welcomed this young couple to the neighborhood 46 years ago and gave us many happy memories of farm life & neighborhood gatherings. She was always friendly & caring. I’m sorry for your loss. We will not be able to attend the services, but be assured of our prayers for all of you. It would be nice to see you ‘kids’ again.
