I graduated from high school with Lucy in 1979 from Cape Fear High School. Such a sweet friend in high school such a precious smile. Not a more sweet, soft spoken friend that always showed love to others. We are planning our 40th high school class reunion now and you will certainly be missed Lucy later this year when we all get together, but you will certainly never be forgotten. Prayers for your family!

My husband grew up with Lucy and him and me both worked with her at the Children’s Home. She was a wonderful and loving person. She will be greatly missed and we’ll be praying for the whole family.
