My deepest sympathy for your loss. I worked with Lucy for many years at DMHC, on the units and in the training department. When my daughter was born she made her a little green gingham outfit. I was so honored for Lucy didn’t sew. I still have the outfit. I still have the lucky penny she gave back to me on Friday the 13th and the butter cups we dug up. She was an amazing lady and l was so lucky to have worked with her. She will always have a special place in my heart. Sincerely, Cindy Temple

Katie and Tom: You have my heartfelt sympathy. I think you know much I loved your mom. My favorite memories are of her humor and cantankerous ways. I especially enjoyed being able to travel with you, Katie, and your mom and dad to her home and relatives in Puerto Rico. It was a trip I will never forget. Another fond memory is when I drove your parents to visit you in Chicago, when you were in the Navy. We had a great time then, too. Your mom will always hold a special place in my heart, and I will think of her often. All my love. -Lori
