Aunt Lucille, ( I always called her Aunt Lucille because she was only a few years younger than my Dad, Paul) was the most elegant lady I knew. When she visited after going to secretarial school, she was dressed professionally and was beautiful. Though I lived next door from the time I was born until I was 6, I don't recall more than thinking how admirable she was. One time after she moved out, she came flying down the lane in a powder blue fire bird. Wow! We would visit her and "Biggs" as she called him when we were kids. A life well lived!

My Mom was special and will be missed by many. She had a great life and traveled the world with her husband Jack. In her final years she lived at Fellowship Squire in Pheonix and loved it. Please do not mourn her passing but celebrate her life which she lived to the fullest.
