I'm so sorry to hear about Lucy. Hope you guys are doing okay. I was looking at some old high school pictures, and I'll always remember her smile and great sense of humor. I just regret that we didn't get together again. Sometimes life, family, illness and work get in the way. I know little can be said, but my thoughts and prayers are with you all. Sincerely Kay (Ford) Fowler Let nothing disturb you Nothing cause you fear; All things pass God is unchanging. Patience obtains all Whoever has God Needs nothing else God alone suffices. St. Teresa of Avila
