We spent several days with Ms. Lucy and family on vacation in Hilton Head. We loved her sense of humor and fun loving attitude. We saw how much Ms. Lucy enjoyed and loved her daughters and son-in-law. I know she will be missed but the love and memories will live on in her family. God bless Ms. Lucy her daughters Joyce, Linda, Son-in-Law Kenny and all family members.
