    Please know that getting to know Lucille has been a blessing for me. She has brought so much pleasure to our family at Lakebridge. We will greatly miss her in all our activities that we do and that she participated in. She was always usually the first one there asking what are we going to do? Now I can picture that is what she’s doing with Jesus. Only she’s walking in instead. God Bless and we are praying for your family. Barbara Story, Activities Director
