Lucy on Sunburns

I have a sunburn on my shoulders.  Lucy hated me to have sunburns and would always fuss saying "Chris shouldn't make you work out in the sun" as she laughed.  I missed that admonishment today and will each time I get a sunburn for the rest of my days. Love you Luce.

Lucy's Burial

Today was a very sad day for a family with extremely close bonds.  Lucy Garrett's burial was this morning. She was a 30 year employee of the Trustee's office of which I was privileged to know for 7 years.  She was was much beloved wife, mother, sister, friend.   I cannot imagine the grief the family is experiencing and will continue to feel for so long.  You were loved Lucy.
