I was truly blessed having such an Angel and amazing person as Grandma Lucy come into my life. I do not have the words to describe what a truly beautiful, compassionate, loving, kind, generous, adoring, and true Blessing to anyone who met her. Open arms and a full plate of wonderful food would always start our night. After, we would get our daubers out and hit the BINGO hall. We would swear one session, (but I know she could always sense my despair and concern for Derek while he was away at basic training or overseas at war) and end up doing two, then it would be the midnight session! A smile on my face and such an immaculate soul that would turn my sadness into smiles and love. She would always only think of others before herself. Grandma Lucy was unlike anyone else in this world! It never failed every time I was with her I felt so loved and happy despite how I might have arrived. She will truly be missed but what a blessing to have had her in my life and I know that it was such a privilege to have had such an amazing grandmother who taught me so much and gave me so many priceless memories. ( including the late night BINGO’s where when we would get home she would ask grandpa Tony to move so I could have the big bed despite my objections just to make sure I was comfortable.) I would have been comfortable anywhere in the presence of her but this was what a sweat soul and generous person she was! These words are nothing compared to my true feelings for what a rare and truly amazing person she was but she is truly indescribable. Love, Anya Morales
