I met Lucille only once when Sr. Barb and I went shopping with her for a winter coat. She was so delightful to meet and her attitude was so positive. She wanted a black coat and we found one that was just right but she kept wondering if it wasn't really a very dark brown. We assured her it was black as it truly appeared to be. It needed a button sewn on so I took it home with me and when I was working on it I read on one of the many tags that the color was "black espresso" which surely meant there was a little bit of brown in the dye. She was right! I hope she will forgive us.
It was a privilege to spend a little time with her. She had so much joy to share. May God receive her with open arms and may God bless all of her friends and family.
