I am Blessed to have called her my friend...

“Please forgive me as I just found out about my dear friend Lucy. . I’m so sad! This woman was such a giant of a person in every way! She was always so kind to me. I met Lucy almost 15 years ago thru scrapbooking. We shared so many conversations about her dear husband and Christina! She was always doing things for people and always preparing for her children’s Sunday school! She was an amazing person and Lucy is definitely in heaven with her husband! One last hug for Lucy... My eyes are blurry and my heart is heavy...”
