  • Sandy and family,
    We are so sorry for the passing of Lucky. He gave of himself to so many people and he never asked anything for himself. They say a person’s biggest contribution in life are the ones we leave behind. With all his family and friends he made the biggest contribution in his life. He always loved to give attention to children with plenty of laughter. The Bible says to put others first before yourself and you will be first with God. I know Lucky is in the front of the line for all of his good deeds to help other people. I always called him ‘” Big Daddy” and he always be remembered.
    God Bless
