Dear Fred and family, Our heartfelt condolences. Our thoughts, prayers, and love to you.
Dear Fred and Family,
Sending my deepest and sincerest sympathies. I was blessed to get to know you two at the Willows when I delivered your mail. Lucy is such a beautiful lady and will live on for ever in your hearts. My thoughts and prayers go out to you.
Hello Fred and family. I was saddened to read of Lucy’s passing. I worked with her at Hafner’s and even visited her in New Hampshire back when. I have many memories of being at your home in Huron and the “green brie” we tried to consume on one occasion. I loved her stories about boating through the locks and one of the Boxers you had. It amazed me how she could pull just the right paper out of a pile on her desk…and the piles weren’t small! I will always remember her fondly. My sincere condolences.
Fred, so sorry to hear of Lucy’s passing. Between the two of you, you taught me so much. She was a very special person. Take care of yourself. You and your family are in my prayers.
Fred we have asked for God’s peace for you. Lucy was deeply loved and will be missed. Just know we will do what we can to help you and we send our love.

I am so sorry for your loss of sweet Lucy — Wife, Mom, Grandmother, Friend…
Lucy was the dearest friend and neighbor I will ever have had the privilege of knowing and sharing life with! Life changes moved us in different directions, but, I have thought of her so often and have so missed my dear next door friend! … our hours of crafting , shopping, laughing, praying for one another, chatting about our families, our children and grandchildren, sharing many of our life experiences –the joys and the sorrows! I will look forward to our reunion in heaven!
Blessings to all of you…
I just started a new job last week and work every Saturday so not able to be there for the Memorial Service (:
