Aunt Lucile was the most wonderful person I could have known I was honored for her to be my Aunt. Every visit I had with her was special I was planning to go visit for her birthday we just didn't quite make it but will celebrate when I get my calling home. I am sure she is up in heaven putting everyone in order that is what she did best organizing all of us. . I am a better person for having her in my life.

I remember first meeting Mimi in 1981 at the Starlight Service at Berry. When Alan and I first became friends. She had a very warm heart and always a smile. The world is a better place because of her.
