Very heartfelt condolences to Lucy's extensive Family and Friends. She was a special lady. Petite, kind, humorous, classy and style with the strength of a giant when needed.
May you find comfort and support during the days ahead, with the retelling of special memories and times spent together.
God bless you all.

I wish to express my sincere condolences to the family. Lucy was a cherished childhood chum when we were in elementary school (l lived on Mountain Avenue) and one of the good kids in the neighborhood gang. Although we went our separate ways, we reconnected when our high school class got together for reunions, etc., and she will be missed.
