    My heart is so sad. Loved sweet Lucy so much and will miss seeing her sweet smile whenever I saw her. I know she didn’t really know who I was the last few times I saw her, but she always gave me her beautiful smile and made me feel like she did. My prayers are for Toddy, who I love too, and for Cathy, Mike and the rest of her big beautiful family.
