  1. Phillip and Lucille visited us in Arizona back in the 60’s and 70’s. Phillip who was my dads brother looked very much like him. Our kids thought it was their grandpa. What a great and full life Lucille had. Our condolences to the family.

She made my grandfather smile again after my grandmother passed away in a way I had never seen. Such a special woman and so sorry for your loss.
