I'm so heartbroken over the loss of my sweet aunt. I'll never forget my visits to the east coast and staying in her home. Always a welcoming smile, hug, and abundance of fresh donuts. I love you Tia Lucy and will miss your energy and laughter. I wish we could be there to show our support. Cousins I'm so incredibly sorry for your loss. There are no words that will take away your pain and suffering. I love you ! Love, Julie and family
