Please know that my mom, Sandy, brother, Dillard and I are thinking of you in your time of loss and sadness. I will always remember once, back in the early 1970's, when Marty, Phyllis, and I repetitively dialed the Operator "0" claiming we had a fire at their place on 3rd and Kentucky. Lucy was furious and after the fire trucks and police cars drove away she gave us a tongue-lashing I've never forgotten:) May you find joy in knowing that she is now reunited with her loved ones who've passed before her and may God's love bring you peace.
