I am so sorry to learn that your mother has passed away. Lucille was a special person—always full of life and so grateful to be healthy and energetic for most of her years. I will miss her. Sincere sympathy to you and your family.

I saw your Mom's obituary in the Jamestown paper today. I want you to know I share your sorrow. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Your Mom was very special to me as she introduced me to Gordon which led to a 49 year marriage before he was taken from me.
I recall so vividly the times I stayed with you and your sister on Harding Ave. and doing nails and lots of fun girl things. Those were the "good ole days".
I send you my love and sincere condolences and pray God will sustain you in the difficult days ahead.

I have such great memories from my childhood when we visited her home in Bemus Pt. with my grandparents Wyllys and Audrey. I remember that they had a very old cat which I loved to pet. We had many good times. May she rest in peace.
