I was Lucy's first cousin. Her mother and my mother were sisters. I wish to convey my deepest sympathies to her sons. Lucy was a good girl and cousin and I loved her dearly. We were closer in our younger years especially when she was attending Nursing School at Obici Memorial Hospital in Suffolk, VA. I am sorry to say that we lost contact when she moved to Eden. I know she is in good hands now as I know, for sure, that she is sheltered in the arms of God. May she rest in peace. Wilford Askew Conway, NC
