Dear Cathy, Nancy, Susie, and Vickie, I have happy childhood memories of your mom and being at your house. She was always smiling, into everything at church, and even after I moved away, we shared news at Christmas and I caught up on all of you….. What an incredible life and attitude she had. I hope you all find comfort in memories and being together. I am blessed to have known your family. Sending you love, Rachel

Missing my friend Lucille. Our girls, (Vicki and Lari Lyn) went to high school together and were roommates at Purdue. We were neighbors at Greentree and here at Westminster. Lots of good times together, which I will never forget. You will always be in my heart. Rest In Peace my friend.

Vickie, I'm sad to hear of your mother's passing although she was able to live such a long and fruitful life. She seemed like such a gentle and sweet lady when I would see her at Brady Lane Church. I especially like the quote you included in the article - excellent advice for any and all to follow! My sympathies to you and yours.

Sending all of the Maris family much love as you grieve Lucille’s death. May the many memories and stories of her life hold and support you as you carry her spirit with you every day. I was so lucky to know her and Jim after becoming neighbors at Green Tree…and extra lucky to have had coffee with her and Mary Nelson (another Green Tree neighbor) at Westminster just a few weeks ago. Two of the most inspiring people one could ever meet! No surprise, Lucille looked cool in her sequined cap and purple assessories! Lucille and Jim (and their dog Jesse) welcomed me and my husband Travis (& our dog Rufus) when we joined the GT neighborhood. Travis & Rufus could often be found sitting with Jim & Jesse in front of their house having a soda, treat and chatting….all supported behind the scenes by Lucille! She understood that because Trav was living with Alzheimer’s disease he needed a bit more attention at times and she was there for him….and me. For a number of years after both our guys were gone we played cards regularly with a group at Greentree….even the winter weather couldn’t keep Lucille away. I learned so much from her especially during those card playing hours together where the game was just an easy way to bring us together in community. So many words of wisdom and tons of laughter to reflect on. Of course, Lucille also wanted to win! I’ll miss her …. and grateful knowing that she will always be with me in many ways.
