I am so sad to learn of LuAnns death. LuAnn is and will always be very dear to me. I worked for LuAnn at Wound Care. She was very patient and kind. We formed a friendship outside outside of work. What a lady. For me it would be hard to say one special memory. We would go out to dinner and go shopping she and i had so much fun. She also would bring me food and all kinds of goodies. Love you LuAnn so much now and forever.

I am deeply saddened to hear of LuAnn's death. I met LuAnn at HRMC, when we both worked there. She was a beautiful woman, inside and out. She was a bright shining light to everyone she came into contact with and always had a kind word to say. I hadn't seen her in a long time but will forever remember her with a smile. We have truly lost an angel of love and mercy, but Heaven has gained one.
My love and prayers are with you all.

My thoughts and prayers go to Kevin, Chad, and Emily during this time of grief. LuAnn was a kind and gentle woman that always had a smile. It has been a long time since I spoke to LuAnn, but I have such fond memories of her and her family. Love and prayers to you all.

Kevin, Chad, Emily, and other family members and friends, it would be a little more acceptable of Lu's passing if the age numbers were reversed. Being only 58 years of age makes loosing this wife, mother, daughter, aunt, and friend so much more difficult to process. None of us know when our time will come, but the one and only thing we can do is to be prepared as to where we will spend our eternity, and it sounds as though Lu was prepared, and for that we hope you can find comfort and peace. Prayers, thoughts of what you are feeling, and love are with you.

Sincerely and Respectfully,
Gary and Connie Allen
