Jim and Liz I am sorry for the loss in your family. She must have been wonderful woman to raise a well like family. You are dear friends. I was unable to attend the funeral, I am sorry. The next Sunday mass I will say a prayer for you all.

Uncle Bill and my Cousins,

I am grateful and feel blessed to have fine loving memories of Aunt Lucille and Uncle Bill (and family) from my child hood and through adulthood.

You always set a good moral example, found time to celebrate and show us kindness.

I can only express that your love and spirit will last forever. I have prayers and heartfelt condolences for you all.

God bless you always.

Dear Bill, David, Danny, Lorraine, Liz and Families,

Thinking and praying for all of you today and tomorrow as you celebrate Lucille's life and legacy. So many wonderful childhood memories come to mind of being with you all...parties at your house or ours, tooling around EP in a Volkswagon, going to Aqua or IGA, watching Liz & Lorraine Irish dancing and wishing I had the Irish blood to dance like that! Thank you for welcoming me into your home so many times and for kindly letting me go along for the ride on whatever you were doing.

Please hug each other from us over the coming days as you grieve the loss of a very special lady. She was truly a dear, dear friend to us. May the Lord hold you close and comfort you greatly during this time.

With Love,
Lisa (Spinazzola)McN eely

To the Ward family- I was so saddened to hear of Lucille's passing. I remember her so fondly from our days in Evergreen Park. She always had a smile and a wink for us girls as we finished our dance lessons with the Morgan sisters.
I feel sure that Angelo met her just beyond the gates with a welcome hug. May God's love and peace sustain and strengthen you all at this difficult time.

We love and miss you dearly. I know you are in heaven with Billy and we will remember you daily. I will never forget your kind, caring, and funny disposition and am grateful for the time we spent together-- playing Bunco was always a highlight! We were all truly blessed to have you as a part of our lives. Until we meet again...

Mom - You will forever be number one in our hearts in all ways. We know you are in a better place now. The time of our lives was made better because of you and we will carry your memory with us forever!
