I'm sorry to hear of Lucy's passing. I have many fond memories of her at SVA and St Josephs. Although Lucy was a year ahead of my class we made her an honorary member and she attended our reunions. May she rest in peace with Our Lord in Heaven.

A candle has been lit!

Dear Children: I am your mother's second cousin, and I've known her all my life even if we didn't get together much, and I am grieved at her passing. My mother Margaret Bischoff Barton was your grandmother's first cousin and great friend. (In fact, my parents and your grandparents May Clare and Cornelius were good friends). I remember them with great affection. A few years ago we had a great gathering of us cousins at your Aunt Margaret's house at Tybee. I'm sending you - I hope - a picture of that happy occasion. Love, Peggy Driggs - Easton, Maryland

My deepest sympathy to the family and loved ones of Miss Lucy. She was a wonderful lady. She had a great sense of humor and a beautiful smile.

I was so sorry to learn of Lucy’s death. My thoughts and prayers are offered for Lucy and her family.

- Mary Anne Butler, Tybee Island, GA

Leon, Michael, Ann Marie and Margaret, our sincere condolences on your Mom's passing. So sorry we were not able to attend the services. Your Mom was one of the nicest persons we have ever met. So much enjoyed talking to her at different events long after we were neighbors on 48th Street. Will be thinking of and praying for you all during this difficult time. Patty and Tom Anglin
