Condolence & Memory Journal

I have just learned of Lucy's passing. I am so very sorry for her family & friends; she was a lovely and generous lady. We loved next door to her in Strongsville until 2013; she would always bring over a plate of her delicious food and dessert after one of her many family gatherings. I used to all her Santa Lucia, not realizing it was her given name, rather for the kind and beautiful woman she always was. I will keep her, and you, in my prayers.

My heart is broken. Lucy was the kindest most sweetest person ever. She always had a smile on her face and I always enjoyed going to visit her when I went to Aztec. It will just not be the same anymore. May God grant her eternal rest. My deepest sympathy to the family. A customer from Aztec.
