Lucille was one of the kindest people I have had the pleasure of knowing. She was always willing to go out of her way to help others. She especially went out of her way to help my family. She was my mothers best friend and the one person that she had to confide in. She was the perfect example of how God expected us to live our lives. God bless you Lucille.
