|Let the memory of Lucille be with us forever|
Its been over three years since you went to heaven. I truly believe you are looking over my shoulder all the time. I think you know I joined a Born Again Christian Church last Christmas Sunday, and am still active with the WMOS. I stay quite busy with fixing up things in my home, besides my responsibilities with WMOS. I am very seldom lonely, but will always miss you"
Happy Birthday! We think of you often and look back at all the great times we had.
- Martha and Sharon"
"Hi Ma, today is your birthday. I also find it hard to believe it has been over two years since you passing. As I told you in my continuous letter, my home I consider our home, for many reasons. I still plan on planting a small flower garden inyour memory. Miss you and will always love you. Your dedicated son, Don. Thank you for being the mother that you were, guiding me, but allowing me to make my own decisions and live with consequences."
"Remembering all the home movies that you took of the Tillson and Carlson get togethers. We had alot of fun watching them! Can't believe it has been 2 years already! Say hello to my Dad for me.
I miss all of our family members that have passed on."
"Thinking of you, Lu. Keep everyone in line up there. Still think of you often, of course, and grateful that you have been in my life. I will always have that. Continued love and prayers for you.....Gail"
""HiMa, Today is your 91st birthday. Hope all is well with you, as over the next few days I will plant some snapdragons around the lamp post outside. I call this place the Carlson home, as you helped in the finances. It is a small cape cod house in back of the old Nortons, with four bedrooms. Love you forever and miss you" Your son, Don"
"Hi Lu. So quickly does a year go by. Thinking of you today and reflecting on your life and the people your touched. Happy Easter! God Bless, Pat."
"Aunty Lu, you are truly missed, but in a better place. We have fond memories of holidays and summers, and many Sunday night dinners together, which will live on forever. Today we will be gathering for Easter and thinking of you."
"Today is your birthday, Ma In your memory I procured a Spathiphyllum plant which like you will live a long time and can be repotted into bigger pots. I miss you, love you, and based upon your request, did not leave you hooked up to a breathing machine. Although tuff for me to say, I told you "It was okay to die", as I knew you were heading for a better place. Happy birthday , Ma."
"Grandma, every memory of you will be cherished. You will certainly be missed. I love you and say HI to dad if you run into him!"
"Lu, I regret not making the time to see you in the last several years. I always thought our meeting again would just happen on its own. Looking back one time stands out for me and that is when me and my former husband visited you and Clarence in your home on the Cape. You made us feel welcomed. We had a great time with the two of you!
You'll be missed by many. God Bless, Pat"
"Fond memories of family get togethers with the Tillsons and the Carlsons are remembered.We always had great fun as families on the holidays, cook-outs and vacations at the Cape. Lucille, ("Toots") was a great sister and friend to Martha and a wonderful Aunt to Holly and Sharon. She will certainly be missed by our family!"
"I can see you right now in a beautiful, sparkley dress dancing with Clarence...with colorful flowers singing and smiling all around you. So nice for Steve to have both parents. I will miss your holiday visits and home made cards for me so much. See you soon. xoxoxxo Arlene"
"-Yo, Grandam Lu. Thanks for being such a great grandmother and 'great' grandmother. I will miss you. Say hi to Dad and Grandpa for me!"
"Grandma Lu, you are a beautiful, loving, determined and happy woman. I admire the grace and patience with which you handle so many situations...always grateful, always accepting, and of course, ready for a good laugh! We will all miss you!"
"This prayer seems written for you, Lu: "I'd like the memory of me to be a happy one. I'd like to leave an afterglow of smiles when life is done. I'd like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways of happy times & laughing times & bright & sunny days. I'd like the tears of those who grieve, to dry before the sun of happy memories that I leave behind when day is done." Love you 4ever"
"Lu, I am so grateful to have known you & to have had you in our lives. You were the sweetheart of the family; always encouraging, positive, accepting. I am grateful for so many good memories that we will keep in our hearts forever. We will miss hearing the "who turned out the yights" story so I may need to take up the charge of retelling it. I will miss your voice, your smile.....you."
