Dear Uncle John and Family,

So many happy and interesting memories of our times together have flooded my thoughts these past few days_ Memories about conversations about everything from Faith to the proper way to wash plastic_ Memories of her stories about times with my parents.

Aunt Lucille makes me smile. I love her ability to gently speak the truth and her many ventures for excellence in so many areas of life. She is a role model.

We celebrate her life well lived!

The world has lost a precious gem this past week. Aunt Lucille was so talented in so many ways. For her 100 years on this earth her accomplishments were incredible. She will be missed more than she will ever know. One of the fondest memories that will be with me forever was her ability to always have a quick clever reply to her beloved husband of 67 years plus when he would make a quick -witted remark. May she rest in peace.
