Sorry for your loss. I worked for Hancock Fabrics and I guess that my voice was similar to James.When I called the store they would page Lucy that her son was on the phone. So she started calling me her other son. My Condolences.
So sorry for your loss. Our family will be praying for your family. May God give you His peace. All our love.
I am so very sorry to learn of Lucy’s passing. It has been a lot of years since our families lived close, and I wish I had returned more often and brought my mom to family reunions. I do have fond memories of our cousin, though, as did, I’m sure, all who knew her. I hope those memories will soon bring comfort to all who are now suffering her loss. The knowledge that she is surrounded by and reunited with the loved ones gone before also provides solace. Condolences.
Our love and sympathy goes to the family at this time. Aunt Lucy was a wonderful person inside and out. I have lots of good memories of her. She will be missed very much.
