    I have so many fond memories of Lucille when I was growing up. Tammy and I were inseparable and Lucille treated me just like a granddaughter. She was an amazing lady and now heaven has a brand new angel. I am so very sorry for your loss. Each and everyone of you are in my thoughts and prayers. If there is anything I can do, please don’t hesitate to ask.
