It was a blessing to have Lucy as a friend and sister-in-Christ. Her smile and her laugh were contagious, you couldn’t help but do the same. She was so smart and so gifted. In their sorrow, may her family find moments of joy in fond memories.

No words can describe what my grandmother meant to me and my brother. She took care of us almost every single day of our childhood. I will never forget her spunky personality and careful watch over us. She would do anything for us. She was always so full of joy, but she was not the one you wanted to upset!
Grandma, we will always love you and remember you for the precious life that you were.
