Dear Johnny & Sharon,

Our thoughts and prayers are with you now. I’ll always remember when you and Aunt Cille flew out for our wedding. It was so special to have extended family there.

We’re glad our children got to meet you and their Great Aunt Cille when we visited you. They still remember eating Pollard’s chicken with all of you.

Keep in touch. We love you!

Dear Sharon and family,

We are thinking about you and our hearts are with you. We pray for the Lord’s comfort in her passing.

Due to our own personal doctor appointments, LTF’s concert at the beach, etc. it doesn’t appear that we will see you in person….but we love you and are thinking of you.

May God richly bless and keep you all.

Dear Sharon,Johnny, and Family

We are really sorry to hear about your Mother. We know that she is now in a better place with her suffering gone. Your Mother will always be with you; her spirit and good will be part of you no matter where you go. I know Sharon that you wanted, needed, and hoped for more time to spend with your mother but the time you did spend with her meant so much, as one of the greatest gifts of Love is that special bond between a Mother and Daughter. Your Mother loved you very much and I know you will miss her terribly.

Your mother was a lady from the top of her hat to the tip of her gloves. Her long association with Avon was abundant in her style, faith, and graciousness.

Lucille will be truly missed by everyone who knew her no matter where they crossed her path in life.

May Our Lords blessing continue for her beloved family.

Peace and Love,

Carole Bryant and Family.

It is very significant in one’s life to observe, to know individuals who, although in a remote way,were crowning examples along the way. I vividly remember Howard and his devotion to his family and church. Lucille is a rock of endurance and an outstanding Christian example!

Lucille, I will always remember summer afternoons with you when I was a little girl, sunning by the Elizabeth River and crunching ice cubes. I love you, Lucille, and I will never forget my “other mother” and favorite Aunt.

We feel as though we knew your Mom from the e-mails that you have sent concerning her illness and the loving relationship that you had with her. It is a wonderful thing when someone knows the Lord and is anxious to go to be with him. I know, that as you stated, that she must be singing in the heavenly chorus. Dale and I will keep you and your family in our prayers. Even though she is in a better place, the hurt of missing her will linger for a while. Johnny and Sharon, we look forward to seeing you soon.

What a lovely picture and write up of your mom. She was a beautiful person, inside and outside. Am sure she is singing praises with the heavenly host to her heavenly Father now.

May God be near to you and all the family and give you His peace and comfort, especially during the next few days.

We love you.

Pat & Dan
