When Pam and I got married, Aunt Lucille gave us a "chalk" cat figurine that had been my Grandma Watson's. That cat meant the world to us then and we treasure it yet today. We were so appreciative of Aunt Lucille for doing that. We will certainly miss her.
Thoughts and prayers to the family and friends of Lucille. My mom considered Lucille a very good friend. They will be reunited again!
Your mother was a great lady; always kind and interested in what was going on in the lives of others. I'm so glad I got to visit with her through the years.
Lucy, we had so much fun over the years. Keep dancing. Lyn & Earnie
