I worked at the Crossover Desk at St.Bernard’s on the same day as Lucille and prior to her shift. We enjoyed visiting each time! I loved Lucille as she was pure sweetness! I’m certain you have many wonderful memories of her beautiful life.
My thought are with you, Carol Hinck

Saddened by news of Ms. Clay’s passing. I’m retired from UP (Cotton Belt) RR as was my Dad Thomas S. Ashcraft who worked with her in Pine Bluff Puchasing & Materials. They were friends for many years & I had occasion to meet her from time to time. She was a special lady. No doubt she will be missed. May GOD Bless the Family suing this most difficult of times.
