My Aunt Lucille was beautiful inside and out. She and my Mom enjoyed many fun times and memories through out the years with their families and children. They loved their church and all the friends and activities. They missed very few trips and as the name said they were, "Young at Heart". She will be dearly missed. Love and prays to you all.

With a heavy heart I write this...Maw-Maw was an incredible woman, whom I had felt great admiration. I would like everyone to know of her unselfishness in helping me raise my two daughters, Beth and Berri. Her influence still shows in Beth and Berri today. I will miss you greatly.

My love and sympathy,
Becky
