Your Mother was one of my "favorites" when I visited Creekside. She always had a sweet smile and kind word. During our "sing -a-long sessions she always told me she couldn't sing but she loved and enjoyed the songs and stories. Please know that I uplift Lucille and all of you in prayerful support. I will be at her services only in "Sprit" Blessings to sweet Lucille and to all of you Very sincerely, Mary Frances (Klaas) Vogel - Boise
