My dearest Lucy, what a great pleasure it was to know you. I will miss you today and always…more so when I come to St. Marys and won’t be able to see your smiling face.
Dearest Schneider/Schaut family, words cannot express how deeply we feel your loss. We know that Lucy is now with her beloved Mom and Dad.
God bless you all, Viv, Brian and Emily Henao-Kirk
