John and Pete, We're sorry to hear of Lucy's passing. She truly had an active life in her 98 years. I still remember her offering the use of their unsold trailer at the time of Dad's (Donald) second bypass surgery in Ft. Myers. May God provide His comfort to you in this difficult time.

I first met Lucy at Walden Place when I did a weekly Communion Service there. I enjoyed visiting with her and she always was interested in what I was doing. She had a "down-to-earth" personality and seemed to look on the brighter side of things. She and her husband Fred attended my Father's (John DeSanta) party at the Elk's Club some time ago. Whenever I was at Cortland Care, I looked in on her. I will miss our conversations. Sincerely, Marilyn DeLorenzo
John, Pete and their families, You are all in my thoughts and prayers especially tomorrow during the service. Remember the good times and let those fond memories help you through this difficult time. Love, Cousin Karen
Tom, Janine and Charlotte offer our sincere sympathy. Although we never got to know Lucy well, we know she was an important part of the family and loved by many. Our thoughts and prayers are will the family
