My sincere condolences to Aunt Lucille's Family. She was such a special lady. I am so glad we were able to visit her when we were in town for Uncle John's funeral last year. She was always so upbeat and happy and made everyone around her feel that way. We enjoyed asking her questions about great grandfather Dodd who lived with her and Russel when he was older. God bless her.

Our families always had so much fun going on fishing trips together when we were kids. When you had her 100th birthday party, I asked her if she wanted to go fishing with me, of course, she laughed. Your Mom was one of the kindness, nicest people I have ever met. She will be hugging Warren.
I am so very sorry for your loss.

With heartfelt sympathy,
