Todd, Cindy, Pam & Mrs. Lucy,
It's been so long since I have seen any of you, but I certainly remember all of you and your dad/husband. He was a loyal fan of our baseball teams and I can remember him cheering all of us on. I just remember him being a friendly, solid, caring man who I know you will all miss dearly. I have all of you in my thoughts and prayers through this most difficult time, but be comforted by knowing Mr. Lucy is in the Kingdom of God where we will see him again one day. Until then, take care of one another. I wish you all the best.
Your old friend, Vic (Augie).
