My sympathy to the family and friends. Lucille is the last first cousin I had on the Christiansen side. I stayed with her and Orville when I was little during summer vacation while they were still on the farm. Good people for sure. So sad, we get so busy in life, we don't take time to visit our relatives like we did in the good ole days. At least we have the resurrection hope of seeing them again.
