I am so sorry to find out Lucy passed away. But I am glad she is not lingering any longer. We hate to them to leave us but happy to know she is now in heaven. They are probably having a High Street reunion. You know she was always special to me. Love Jeanette
May God bless Sister Lucy’s family. She always treated us with kindness. We remember visiting in Bro. Reed and Sis Lucy’ home and were so welcomed. May God comfort all of you.
