  4. Lucy was one of my dearest friends. A Godly lady who loved our Lord. A joy to remember the times we would share together visiting in each other’s homes and playing board games of one kind or another. As couples we would attend Forestry meetings and enjoy fellowship with others at the meetings. Oh! How I will miss my best friend. Lucy, I will always remember you with love and deep friendship. A very kind, sweet and Godly lady. I will always love you. When you see Richard tell him I love and miss him just as I will miss you. With my love, Linda
