On her birthday

Dear friends and family,

I wanted to take a moment and thank you once again for your kind words and gestures this time last year when we lost our dear Olive Lucy. In the face of such devastating sorrow, I remember many different moments of comfort from those sharing their feelings and offering solace. Sometimes it was just about all that kept us going.

Lucy was and is a mighty force. She helps us every day to see how precious life truly is, and she urges us to enjoy each moment, no matter how small or trivial it may at first appear. I am sorry to have lost her but happy to have known her.

If you have an opportunity to light a candle tonight, it would be appreciated. Be well, take care and thanks again for being there for us during such a difficult time.

Peace, love, and light,
Watson, Christine, and Olive Lucy

I will light a candle for Olive Lucy and say a prayer for you.

Getting through the first year is the worst. As time goes on it gets easier.... You never forget but it does get easier.

Blessings, Lura

We lit a candle for you today Lucy, in remembrance of those you lit in our hearts. "And when the night is cloudy there is still a light that shines on me. Shine until tomorrow, let it be." Lucy, please continue to shine on all of us...especially the ones that gave you your clown feet. We love you and know that we will see you again someday.
