It is really wonderful and joyful to know that because of her Faith, at the moment of her Passing here on Earth, she was IMMEDIATELY healed and in GOD’s PRESENCE experiencing JOY that those of us who are still here, CANNOT EVEN IMAGINE!

  5. I am blessed to have met Lucille and fondly remember our time together, although short over the years, i remember our discussions about Texas and her energy for life. I was always impressed all her knowledge of football and the players that she would discuss with Ralph. Praying the Lord who is holding wonderful loving Lucille, now wraps His loving arms around your family with His Love, Comfort & Peace. Lifting you all up in prayer during this difficult time.

  6. Dear Joni and David and family,
    I feel so thankful I got to talk to your mom again recently. I was amazed at her upbeat and cheerful expressions. She inspired me. I count myself very blessed to have your mom as my aunt. She was always so very sweet and kind to me, my whole life. I know you will miss her terribly and please know that we send our love and prayers for you in your loss. One of my favorite memories of spending time with Aunt Lucille was when Mick, Monica and I went to Colorado and stayed with her. We then all drove back to San Antonio together after our visit. Spending time with her was always a delight. Her faith and optimism during her illness was amazing. I hope you can feel God’s love wrapping around you at this time of grief and loss.
    Much love,
    your cousin, Becky Johnson Hull
