Lucy and I first crossed paths at work. Her humour and zest for life were infectious. It was an absolute pleasure to spend time in her company. I can honestly say that she was one of the kindest, most caring people that I have ever met. I hope that she can now rest in peace, having fought so courageously Love and best wishes to all her family at this tragic time. xx

Dearest Lucy, You are the kindest most beautiful soul anyone could ever wish for as a friend. Your vibrancy, your love of life; Your infamous smile and humour that could always brighten the darkest of times; Your elegance and your beauty; All in abundance – and yet complimented with such grace and humility. The strength and dignity you drew from your ever eternal faith was beyond compare and continues on through Joe, Jesse and Annie. I often called you my “Superwoman”, and was in awe of your undeniable courage and hope. I shall miss our walks in the sunshine putting the world to rights, our catch up cuppa’s, more launches of the fabulous “Aunty Lucy’s” banana bread bake sales with Annie and Megan – and of course those ladies nights out! “Carpe Diem” was your motto, and you certainly did - with both hands! Little did we know then what the future held and that just one week ago that I would be sharing my most privileged and treasured moments with you, which of course involved your love of music! So until we hold hands again Lucy, take comfort in the legacy you have left to so many. Safe journey and God bless, Love always, Jacqui, Mark, Connor & Megan xx

Lucy, you were one in a million, lighting up the lives of all of us who were lucky enough to know you. I will always remember your dazzling smile and joyful laugh, your amazing zest for life and the love, kindness and generosity you extended to everybody. Your spirit will live on in our hearts forever. Much love and sympathy to all your loved ones at this terribly sad time xxxxx

I met Lucy (and her Mum Adelaide)in the summer of 2012, we had both finished our treatments and had become involved with Brafternoon a new support group. We shared many giggles and of course tears along the way. She struck me as one amazing lady, full of life, love and laughter with a dazzling smile and huge beautiful brown eyes. She talked often of her lovely children, her religion and her baking. My last vivid memory of Lucy is at our Christmas party ........ oh boy she rocked it!! She sang, she danced and danced till she could no more. A privilege to have known such an awe inspiring special lady. Sleep tight my love. Much love to Jesse, Annie and her family Kay x

Tuesday 22nd March, my aching heart broke as you departed this earthly life my dearest bestie and sister. You showed such courage and determination throughout your fight against this hideous disease. Your incredible strength of character and your unwavering faith in the Lord kept you going right up until the very end. You showed time and time again, that even in such adversity, the Lord was your stronghold and your refuge, your faithfullness in the Lord totally unquestionable and for that we salute you, our phenomenal Lucy. After over 20 years of loving you as my sister, my source of strength and my daily dose of happy pill, how do we move on from here? My darling most precious Lou, we have been so truly blessed to have had you in our lives and you will forever be in our aching hearts. Our lives will never be the same again. You have left the most wonderful legacy in your beautiful children Jesse and Annie and your darling Ebow. We pray the Lord keep you safe in his arms until we meet again my darling Araba LouLou. Rest in God's eternal peace. Love you today and always xxx

Lucy Mary thank you for the thoughtful moments we shared the last few years! Even though we were in secondary school together I will get to know and appreciate your strength as we grew up. I felt so overwhelmed with your positive outlook to everything in life, the logical approach and the maturity! I learnt a lot my only regret the last time we spoke I had placed an order for your amazing cakes for work to give out as present for Mother's Day! You were so cheerful and we made plans to getting you to meet the rest of OAA 84 group! I told you the amazing evening I had meeting all the other friends and you were so looking forward to the next meeting! We both concluded that fb was amazing and felt eternally grateful that we established contact! Rest in perfect peace my friend and you will be sorely missed and I will cherish the memories of your smile and that infectious laugh! The poise wow you always was a lady!! The world has lost an angel

Lucy you was one of the most kind, thoughtful and bubbly person I have ever had the honour to have met. I remember some Sunday's there would be a knock on the door and it was you delivering your most delicious banana bread! We used to fight over who was having the last slice. It was legendary!! You always had a smile on your face and never seemed to let anything faze you. Even when times were so hard for you, you still tried your hardest not to show it. What a truly amazing person you are and I will never forgot you! You will always remain close to my heart! Xxx

Lucy, your positivity and laugh were infectious. You were an amazing woman and I give thanks our paths crossed. The world is a slightly darker place without you in it. Rest in well deserved peace. X

Lucy, had I known that you would be leaving so soon I would have braved the Carnival with you on that rainy August Bank Holiday afternoon in 2014. Oh death, you have robbed us of a gem. One that shone so brightly that she dazzled. Lucy, your brave fight was done with such effortless grace, good humour and dignity. You made me feel so proud to know you. I bet there was a great fanfare and resounding applause when you walked through the gates of heaven. Go prepare a place for us. We will go to the carnival in heaven. Rest in peace my brave Sister. Forever in my heart. xxx

Lucy, you were the bravest most dignified person I have known - fighting your battle relentlessly. I don't think they're many of us that knew you who haven't sampled the famous banana bread - even my fussy Mia loved it! Who would've thought that 13 years after we met with our tiny new borns - we would have literally danced our feet off at Jacqui's 49th - well your toenail anyway! I've lost one of my best dance partners - with the biggest smile and the greatest laugh. You taught me a lot about what's important in life and for that I am forever thankful. I'll miss you my friend - save a space on that dance floor up there for me! Love always, Michelle xx

Lucy your life was a blessing, your memory a treasure, you are truly loved beyond any words can portray and will be missed beyond measure. You faced your illness with true dignity and stoicism. We are humbled by the positivity and grace you maintained to the end and of course your wicked sense of humour which never left you! Heaven has gained an intelligent, beautiful and loving soul who is probably looking down on us saying " I dey guys just stay strong for Ebow, Jessie, Annie and Mum!!!" Rest in perfect peace Sweet Aba. Esi & Frankie

We were fortunate enough to have Lucy on our team at a few quiz nights, still not sure why we didn't win. Of course it was the taking part that mattered and the laughs, oh did we laugh, we weren't very good but we had the best of times and we're very sad that Lucy won't be on our team any more but a place will be saved for her! What I remember more than anything is how selfless Lucy was. I've had a few health problems lately and Lucy, although she was going through her own treatment, messaged me to ask what she could do to help. I felt ashamed, bucked my ideas up and took more control of my illness and am much better than I was. I wish Lucy knew what a difference she made to not only me but many, many people, who all loved her. Lucy we will miss you but won't stop thinking about you. xx

Dear Lucy its been soo many years that we talked, however the memories that remains with me is our Motown days. The juniors attest to the fact that you were one of the kindest seniors. I followed you post on FB and from that I know you still had the faith burning. Gods ways are not our ways and something's will always remain a mystery. One thing that I know that God has always won the battle for us. Philippians 3:20-21 but our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things unto himself. RIP dear Lucy
