Lucille Leary was gorgeous, funny, an amazing conversationalist, appreciated family and roots, carved out a beautiful life in Vermont, loved talking about philosophy, culture, politics, and had the most wonderful wisdoms collected over years of experience. She was a great story teller. We attended Mass together many times, had many lunches here and there, played cards, processed joys and pains, she saved my life a few times, and literally had a hand in my own parents meeting and falling in love. She has always been a class act from beginning to end... she lives on and on and must be having a fabulous time wherever she is now, cause she was always a fabulous time. I love you, Auntie. I never really thought you'd be anywhere else except near enough to visit and enjoy. I miss you very much but I have your strength, joy, and all you ever taught me deep inside my genetic code and heart, I know this! Please tell Dad and Grandma hello and enjoy reuniting with Dorothy. You were so so so so so SO loved. Please look over us and create whatever wonderfulness you can from where you are.

Lucille was both gentle and fierce. I knew her as the mother of my best friend, Kim. Kim described her mom as having "mother bear" love, always protective of and present for Kim and Herb. She knew how to enjoy life's simple pleasures-the view of kids and cars and nature outside of her living room window. She also was able to relish the big stuff- attending President Obama's inauguration, visiting the White House during his tenure, and recently seeing Hamilton in Boston as a birthday surprise. When I would see her at Kim and Richard's at the holidays, she was always gracious and generous in her willingness to share her own history of growing up as a light-skinned African American in New Orleans and the challenges that presented.She had such pride in Kim and Herb and their accomplishments and showed love and great tolerance for her grand puppies, a happy succession of American Eskimos. Lucille's is a life to be celebrated and missed for sure.

My heart hurts for you. I'm thankful you showed that you loved your mother long before this day. I 've been asking God to help you through this difficult time. I'm fully convinced that He will.

Lucille was an honorary member of the 2014-15 Robert Wood Johnson Health Policy Fellowship in Washington, DC via her daugher Kim and son-in-law Richard. She's been one of us ever since and we all valued and grew from her friendship and example. She lives on in our memories and in the caring and committed lives of her children.
