Oh how we loved our Aunt Lucy....and our hearts are heavy. Aunt Lucy shared the most tender love with all of us Macavinta kids and was a very huge part of our lives. A most gracious lady, with a smile that could light up the world. We send up prayers for her family for strength and healing during this sorrowful journey and pray that the loving and tender memories of her will bring you comfort and peace of heart and spirit. So much can be said about the amazing angel that helped our parents take us from crayons to parenthood.....She was always an example of faith, love of our Lord, love of family, and grace. She was deeply loved by her Macavinta kids and she will be missed more than words can express. Much love, condolences and sincere sympathies for all of us to all of you.

I'm so glad I talked with you last Sunday. We walked down memory lane. You remembered all you knew and we laughed. If I were there I'd give you yellow roses. I'd love to see everyone. Just know I'll always love you and glad you were born, a grandchild of our grandparents, Alfonse and Norma Kubala. Tell them Hi for me, as well as our parents. Try not to get too loud at your get together in Heaven! Texas is your home, though you be far away. Keep those mountains safe there where you'll be.

To Lucille family, The Daughter Republic of Texas would like you to know how sorry we were to here of her passing. Even though she lived in Utah she still was a DRT daughter. We will have a memorial service in 2016 in May and all the Daughters will be honored then. Our prayers go with all of you. May God Bless you and God Bless Texas.
