Don, Richard, and Maggie. I am at a loss for adequate words to express my sadness for you. I had the blessed opportunity of knowing your mom as a co-worker, but even more so as a friend. I am truly sorry for your loss.

To the Nichols Family,
My prayers are with each and everyone of you during your time of sorrow. I worked with Lucy at Westville and I remember her training me for different jobs in the GSC complex. Lucy was a person who always had a smile and was fun to be around. She will be greatly missed. Hold on to all of your precious memories, and know that weeping may endure for a night but joy will come in the morning.
