If you know the dynamic of our family even a-little; then you should be aware that my Grandmother Lucille was the Matriarch of our family and a large influence to us all. She was loved very much by many and will be missed. She spent most of her life caring selflessly for others , and giving constantly. There was never an obstacle nor task that she wouldn’t tackle. She was sharp as a tack! Even at 99 She kept a good eye and a tight ship. Its time for her too care for the ones that arrived there before her. Love ya more Grandma ! it was a blessing to be your (first haha) Grandson. Thanks for all you have taught me and helped with ! Keep practicing on your skip-boo game ! Best Grandma a kid could ask for. See you again ! Say hi to all that are missed up there !
Your Danny-boy !
“BEAUTIFUL GREAT LADY!!”
