    My heart goes out to Lucille’s family. I had the pleasure of meeting Lucille while on a trip to Idaho for a family reunion on my mother’s side of the family. I had made contact with Sandy, Lucille’s daughter through Ancestry.com and was able to meet family from my father’s side of the family also. Lucille is a 3rd cousin 1x removed to me on my father’s side of the family. We enjoyed doing a little research together during our meeting. I cherish the memories of our brief meeting.

    Dear Sandy and Rich and Lucille’s family We are so sorry that you have lost Sandy’s Mom. I am very glad to have known a pretty and most pleasant woman. I appreciated her brave commitment to come to church for as many Sundays as she could and always with a pleasant word for anyone who greeted her.
