When they were young danny was pestering your mom and she threw a fork or knife at him and Archie was always laughing about messing with your mom. I think his favorites was when he sang you picked a fine time to leave me Lucille and he would say with 400 children and no crop in the field and sang he wished he had Jessie girl and the times the boys would climb up the walls and trees and jump down and scare all the girls

Your mom was so good to my mom and us, especially my mom. Favorite memory was when she invited my whole family to the beach house she rented in Myrtle Beech with many of her brothers, sisters and their families, it was the year of the big family reunion at Aunt Melba’s. We had the best time! She wouldn’t even let us pay to help cover our stay. Your parents have always been good to the family like that. Please let your Dad know I’m thinking of him too!

One of my favorite memories of your mom was when I was in college I would always stop by the video store on my way home for the weekend and pick up some movies I remember when they got the photo developing equipment and she was showing me how it was all processed. One of the best parts about coming home with stopping by the video store and seeing everybody.

She would always come in and listen to the music I made. And I remember falling asleep in her bedroom in the bed while she was watching tv almost every day.

Lucille to me from the beginning was a very accepting and nurturing person. She took me in like a son and treated me that way too. Best cook ever and always made sure everyone ate well. She was like a mom to me and I'll never forget that.

Lucille was one of the most giving people I have known. When mom died it wasn't easy for her to say goodbye to her home. Lucille made it effortless. With having so many siblings I can remember Lucille being the cook, The housekeeper and the big sister. With little money in the home she brought me my first prom dress and had my hair done too.
Such a sweetheart!
