    I talked to Lucille in 2014 and it was great to talk about school days and our life since leaving Spaulding (children, we each had one girl and our grandkids, work and what we were doing since retiring. She was volunteering as secretary for someone running for City Council at the time we talked. She seem to be very happy and I am happy I had that moment in time with her . Know my prayers are with all of you and remember John 14:27— Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”

    Dee Dee & Family, While our circle of friends changed as we got older, I’ve always held good memories of us growing up across the street from each other. I was very saddened to see of your mom’s passing. She was a wonderful, hard working, loving mother to you and always treated me well! Your family will be close in my prayers.

  14. To: The Cordell Family.
    I am sorry for your lost. May you find comfort in God’s Word the Bible. Jesus said: At John 6:40 For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who recognizes the Son and exercises faith in him should have everlasting life, and I will resurrect him (her) on the last day.
    May the hope and promise in this Scripture bring you comfort and strength to endure the difficult days ahead.

    To Dee-Dee and family,
    Our deepest condolences are sent to you at your time of loss. Aunt Ceille was always a joy to be around. She was always taking care of people with her kind spirit. I have a wonderful memory of her at my wedding. I was running around ,nervous before the wedding on the verge of tears. Aunt Ceille came in the room wanted to know what was wrong and what ever I was doing she would take care of it. She did everything from getting the bridesmaids arranged to tying the ring bearers ties. She had that kind of gentle spirit that could calm the storm. Aunt Ceille is waiting in heaven now for her loved ones and I know she will still take care from heaven.

  18. To Lucille’s family and friends:
    I knew Lucille when I worked at the Mansfield Police Dept. many years ago. She was such a kind and gentle person; I always enjoyed seeing her. God bless and comfort you at this time of sadness.
