Karen, Gail, and family,
I was very sad to hear that Aunt Lucy had passed.
She was such a sweet person and so much fun to be with.
Once while in Florida she and I got together for a trip to Disney World. It had opened a few years prior, and she wanted to take her grandchildren there. She wanted us to go to nearly every attraction there to preview them for her grand-kids. What a day!
I’ll miss her very much. My love to you all.
Cousin Steve
