  1. Dear Eric and Family;
    We were very sorry to read of the passing of your mother. She was blessed to have lived an incredibly long and fulfilling life and we wish you all peace and calmness during this difficult time.

  2. I Miss Lucille, greatly!

    I have been delivering Meals on Wheels for many years out of the Sheffield Senior Center and she was on the route when I started so many years ago that I can’t remember when I started!

    She was always good for a joke and a chuckle until the very last.

    I’d like very much to attend her services whenever they are held and am posting my email to hope for a notice.

    Dennis Sears
