I just learned of Lucileâ€™s passing. She was my neighbor and I worked with her at Lady Fair. A very sweet and kind lady. My prayers are with her family may God bless you!! â¤ï¸ðŸ™ðŸ½
With long life, the Lord did indeed satisfy her. God says, I knew you before I formed you in your motherâ€™s womb and so Luceille indeed lived until 100 years old. She is rejoicing with her Savior and loved oneâ€™s. Sending warm hugs to family as I know she will be missed by famiky and friends. Wonâ€™t be long until the reunion.
I am so sorry for your loss. I know there was a beautiful homecoming for her in Heaven. You all will be in my thoughts and prayers.
Our prayers for Sis. Oden's family. She was such a sweet lady and I loved talking with her when we were at church a few years back and always a hug & smile.
rest in peace
