Deepest sympathies from John Clark. I will always cherish spending time at her house when I was a kid. She was a true class act.
Dot I am so sorry to hear about Aunt Lucille, me and my husband went to see her not long ago she was sitting up in her chair holding her baby doll, I asked her if she knew who I was I really think she did because she laughed and I hugged her neck she did not want me to stop. She lived a good long life, and she is with her brothers and sisters now. May God be with you and your family . Love Donna Curry Smith
