Betty I am so sorry to hear about Lucky. I am in Florida and just read of his passing this morning. I can't tell you how much of a shock this has been.

My best memory of Lucky was just after we moved in, I was outside in back of my house building my deck and I tripped and fell pretty hard. Lucky must have seen me fall because within a matter of minutes he was helping me get up and making sure that I was OK. I will always remember how gracious he was to me and to my family.

I am so sorry for your loss. He will be missed.

Lucky and Betty were the kindest to me. I have never met a more sincere, loving couple. This loss will echo memories for a long time. They guided and changed my life. Our loving prayers go out to Betty and family. Our hearts are full of love for them.
With honor to a stellar man. Fred and Jan Reese

Lucky was a comrade in work and a good friend of mine for many years when he was the heart and soul of Delf's Painting. I have such fond memories of him. My condolences to his family, he was a great guy and surely will be missed.
