To Mrs Lucy's family I am so sorry for your loss. I barely got to meet her during her stay at the hospital. She was a very sweet and loving person. I'm thankful I got to meet her. I will keep all of you in my prayers during this time of grievance.

I am sorry to hear about Lucy's passing. She was a great help/blessing gathering family information, for the family tree project that was needed.

May you all hold on to beautiful memories of her forever. God bless!!
