Grandma Lucy, 
She was always so sweet when I would call her up on the phone. She always made sure to check up on me, my husband and the kids. Every birthday and Christmas would send us a little something to celebrate. 
Even though we were miles apart I always knew she loved me so much. Thank you Grandma for all your love. 
I’ll miss her!

She always remembered her grandchildren’s birthdays, and was genuinely kind to everybody. Very sweet lady, always.

Wonderful lady, friend and my stepmom.  She was a kind loving person, and influenced my life for good, especially as a teenager.  She endured my faults and encouraged me to be a young lady, and showed me what being a lady was all about.  She was a wonderful example.  I will miss her greatly.   Lisa.
