Gary and Beth. Words can’t express my sadness at your Mom’s passing. But let me talk about the memories that she, and your Dad, created in my heart. I was truly fortunate to have her as my ‘second Mom’ and to know that you were all there if I ever needed anything.

Gary and Beth, I was saddened to learn of your mother’s passing. She was such a lovely (in all respects) woman. I stopped at the Willows in May and had a wonderful visit with her. I send you and your families my sincerest condolences.

Aunt Lucille is at the top of my list when it comes to great women. She was strong, funny, talented, giving, and supremely kind. Gary and Beth, I share your grief and sadness at the loss of such a remarkable woman. Stopping to see your mom this August was definitely going to be one of the highlights of our trip back to Ohio. It won’t be the same without her, but her influence on my life will still remain. Much love to both of you and your families.
