Our sympathies & prayers are with all of you. I always thought a lot of Lucille. My Mom & Dad, June & Lester Berberick, did also. They really enjoyed the cards Lucille sent them. Mom & I were having lunch at the L&K many years ago, about the year 2000. Lucille came in alone, and we asked her to join us. We had a very nice time, even talking politics! Junior was a special neighbor also. He always reminded me of someone. Only recently did I realize it was Barney Rubble of The Flintstones! He was a handsome guy, and they made a good looking couple. I just wanted to share some of our good memories of them. Peace & healing,
Lu Maurer

I am very saddened to here of Lucille’s passing. I came to know Lucille at Country Kitchen. I loved waiting on your Dad and Mom over the years and really came to know your Mom after your Dads passing. She was such a nice lady. May God comfort you all during this sad time. I am sure she is rejoicing in heaven being with your Dad once again. My deepest sympathy to all.

Linda, Lori and all the family. So sorry to hear “Aunt Dolly” has passed. We will miss her. We always had that special name for your mom. Our mother Rosie, always spoke of her with that nickname and somehow it just seemed right. Will remember your mother’s smiling face and her radiant love of life. She was special to all. Again, sorry for your very sad loss.
