So sorry to hear of Aunt Lucille's passing. I have so many fond childhood memories of going to Ralph and Lucille's house for family dinners and reunions. Aunt Lucille was so sweet and had a mild manner about her. She always made us laugh. My prayers are with the family at this time.

I don't know why I knew her as "miss" Lucille. Every time that she came
to Dr.Rhodes I enjoyed seeing her{even though she may have been
more demanding at home}.Jan my thoughts are with your family.
