Where do I begin?? I was named after her, inherited her arms, her height, her legs, her bubbly personality . Now if I continue on this path I am guaranteed a long life with my family and friends beside me. This was a standing joke with us. She would say can you believe I'm 90, 91, 92, etc etc and I would say keep going. . The longer you go on, so will I . Everytime I called she would say when are you coming to visit me. And anytime she visited the first thing she would say is What do you have for me? She was more than an Aunt she was mother and a friend. I think what I'll miss most are the faces. The many faces of Lucy. If she didn't like something that was one face. If she didn't like you that was another face. Sooo many faces. Rest in peace beautiful one. You will be missed
Love Lulu

Lucy was a kind, loving, and giving person. If you were her friend, she was a friend for life. There are so many fond memories I would not know where to begin. My mother and her were close friends and got to know Lucy as a young girl. We would see her 3 or 4 times a week because she lived around the corner. We would look forward to her visits. Lucy will be sorely missed. My heart goes out to her family! You had a Wonderful Mother in Lucy!
