  • We know you by those you have left behind on earth, and by knowing them, know that you leave this world much more blessed than when you arrived. You must have been the living image of the Beatitudes, as reflected by your grandchildren, whom we are fortunate to know. May we all learn from your example.

  • To the Lackey Family,Joy, Faith and Grace: You have our deepest sympathy at this time. Your grandmother was a sweetheart and will be sadly missed. She was so blessed to have you all with her in her last years of life. No child or grandchild could ever have provided more love and care than all of you did for her. She taught you well. I hope soon the pain of losing her will be overshadowed by many happy memories.
