Aunt Lucille was always a pleasure to visit when in Grant Town. She and Uncle Richard would read books together. They especially liked Rocket Boys. Our sympathy goes to all in her family.

Aunt Lucille was a special lady! We tried to visit with her any time we were in Grant Town. May she now join Uncle Richard and the rest of her family! She was a battler!!

I so sorry to read of your loss. With the current events, many people are in the need for comfort. The Bible tells us at Revelations 21:3,4 that soon “death will be no more” and that the mourning and outcry that we experience, when we lose someone close to us in death, will be done away with too. This scripture has helped me a many times and I hope you will draw comfort from that. In addition, I hope that the “God of all comfort”, comfort you doing this time. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4).
