    Such a dear friend. Joey and I enjoyed going out to eat with her and George for many years until Joey’s health declined. Lucy was a sweet classy lady. She always had a beautiful smile on her face.
    I know you are resting at the feet of Jesus and probably telling him a joke or two. Love ❤️ you my sweet friend.

    I always thought the world of Lucy Nannie. I saw Lucy and George at Walmart about 4 to 6 weeks ago. Sorry to learn about her passing, but heaven is sweeter now.
