Sorry to hear of Lucille death. We corresponded a couple of times about the family. I am related to her by my father Erwin Hensley, great grandfather Gaither Hensley. She helped me with her side of the family. Would like to hear from either Sarah or Irene or one of their children. I can be reached at 228-328-4183. 18184 Village Drive, Saucier, MS 39574.

Aunt Lucille was my Fathers sister She always went out of her way to show me love and kindness, I spent some time with her in 2004 we had prayer together We knew the next time we would see each other would be in heaven with our Lord Jesus .We shared that truth together and it is comforting now.
I did not have the honor to have known Lucille, but I wanted to convey my family’s condolences to all the Hensley family. We are related by Cora (Burleson) Hensley’s link back to Edward and Matilda Burlison. Please accept our profound sadness to hear that Lucille and passed away and our confidence and faith that we shall all finally get to meet her ‘later’.
