Bobby, Judy and family, our condolences go out to you. Auntie Lucille will be missed. I used to see her at the New Rep when she ushered there. She really had a love for theatre and many other interests. It was always a pleasure to chat with Lucille when she called to renew her subscription to The Jewish Advocate.

Judy and Bobby: I am so very sorry for your loss of your mother. I will miss her very much. We would talk on the phone for hours. She had a great sense of humor ! I admired her independence.
I could go on and on, but I will leave it at she was a great lady and a great friend. One more thing about Lucille: I never heard her say a bad word about anybody.
