Aunt Lucy was such an awesome Lady! Although I had not seen her since just before she sold the farm, we had exchanged Christmas cards and notes until a few years ago when my cards came back as undeliverable. I am devastated that I had thought, in error, that she had passed an no one had told me. I am overwhelmed that I had lost contact and saw that she was indeed still with us and that contact was not available. Aunt Lucy and Uncle chuck were very kind to me, even after my parents were gone. I shall mourn her loss again as I did several years ago. Awesome strong lady who cared so much for others!
