Mom you where the best mother anyone can have you and my dad taught me you have to work for what you want . You raise me in the church and you always told me to stay in the church. When I had a very bad accident you was the only one there . You drove everyday from Rockford to Madison every day and you maintain my house and family with no complaints and I realize that had to be hard for you but I never heard you complain. I miss you so much and I know you are still here with me. I love you mom. Miss you so much

Sending my thoughts, prayers, and Gods comfort to my family during this sad time in the loss of this special woman. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen Aunt Lucille but I definitely remember her Beauty as well as her gentle and quiet spirit which is so precious to God.

Sending love and a special prayer to Uncle Clyde and may you find peace knowing that she has finished her race and gone home to be with the Lord.

Love you all. 💗

To the Family, I am so sorry for the loss of such a wonderful Christian Friend. We worshiped together, she did my hair, we attended weight watcher, we walked together. I know she will be missed by many..... I loved and miss her so much.
