Mrs. Lucile, as my family knew her, was always a kind, friendly face at Rosedale Baptist Church. She first welcomed me as a single student. Then, when I got married, she welcomed my wife as well. After kids arrived, she continued smiling and welcoming. Even from her wheelchair, she was a consistent ray of sunshine.
When my time comes and I go to see my Lord Jesus, Mrs. Lucile will, once again, be there to welcome me. This time, however, there will be no walker, no wheelchair and no disease.
May God bless her family during this time of sorrow.
