  2. I first met Lucille in 1949 when we worked for the U.S.; Navy. We shared an apartment for about a year and then went our separate ways but we kept in touch. They were stationed in Germany the same time we were though not on the same base but did get to visit. Lucille was a devout woman so I know she is with her Lord.
