Memories Timeline


  1. Lucy was a very special lady. She will be greatly missed. May God bless and comfort all of you during this difficult time.

  2. Just wanted to say that some of my best childhood memories were of going to ‘Uncle Tom’s and Aunt Lucy’s’. Aunt Lucy was a truly kind and gracious woman who always made me feel welcome in her home. My sympathies go out to all my cousin’s who took good care of their mother until it was her time.

    God bless everybody.

    Love, Charlene
