Lucille was one of the sweetest, kindest, caring people that I can call my friend. We were in the Milford Senior Center Gospel Choir together, and became friends. She knew my every mood, gave me such wonderful advice, but also looked me right on the eyes while doing so. There were times that I would come to choir a little sad, and she would call me after to " straighten " me out with her kind, but also firm advice. Always a lady, but strong, and her faith in God and strength carried her when she became ill. I will miss her terribly, but remember that smile, and twinkle in her eyes when she would say" can you sit with me a moment", and I knew, that again, all would be ok, after we talked. I love you , Lucille. My sincere condolences to her family.-- Jan Sowka
