Lucile's wishes~

I hope that by now, some of the sadness of my departure has begun to wear away.  Think of me with a smile as the mother, grandmother, and great grandmother who shared your laughter, tears and dreams through the years.  I lived a great span of years and enjoyed them all.  I loved a good man and was loved in return.  I cradled a daughter in my arms and held the hands of two young sons.

Think of the happy times:

               Good friends and good times.

               The holidays.

               The graduations.

               The weddings.

               The summers at the lake.

And the thousands of times we were together as a family.

When you see a star in the sky, look at it with love and let it come into your heart and remember me.

    My sympathy to Mary Kay and Richard on the death of your Mother. I was not able to attend the funeral, but have many fond memories of her, your Dad, and you while I stayed at your house and went to College. Now, Billy has Mom & Dad with him. She was a lovely lady and lived a long good life. May the Love of God, Family and Friends be a Comfort to you at this time.
