  2. What a wonderful lady she was! Lucy always took the time to show an interest in my life and made me feel so welcome whenever I would see her at family events. I always loved hearing that sweet southern twang that she never lost. Her voice was like her signature and when she spoke, her words were always kind and comforting. May she rest in eternal peace with her loved ones that have gone before her.
