sad to see you go - wish I had been able to spend more time with you, you had so much to teach and offer all of your family.
I have some very special memories of your mother. She was always very kind and supportive to us wild and sometimes crazy kids.
Because I live so far away and Rex is gone now, I don't hear of deaths in Brigham. I was looking on the Gillies site today and noticed that Lucy had passed. I am sorry that you guys had to go through this. It is especially hard when your "mom" passes. I have fond memories of Aunt Lucy. She was always so kind to me. I remember how industrious she was and when we would all gather at grandma's house, she was always in the kitchen helping. She was a great person. I am sure the pain is still in your hearts. Please know that I am thinking of you guys.
