I was so sorry to read about your mom/sister. I have happy memories from way back, at the lake, and more recently her ready smile whenever we would meet. We will have a Mass for her here at the IHM Center, and will remember all of you in our prayers. Love, Carol

To all my cousins & families...My Aunt Lucille will always remind me of my childhood and the wonderful times I had in PA. She represented all that is good in being an Aunt, giving us a warm & welcome place to stay, feeding us and being such an important part of my growing up with unconditional love from extended family. I take comfort knowing she is now with your dad, my parents and all those gone before her and having a great time catching up on stories! Love to all, Cory Nash
