  1. Hi Cindy & Darcy,
    Condolences on the loss of Lauchena. The day we all went to the zoo together is a wonderful memory I will cherish and so will Dannielle. The sunshine, the elephant and Lauchena’s spark are what I most remember of that day.
    Lauchena was funny and full of life. Heaven needed her spirit and sense of humor and so she’s a beloved angel now. Thank you Cindy for letting me get to know Lauchena a little bit. The one visit I had with her at the General by myself she went on and on about what beautiful, generous and kind daughter you are. She also mentioned what a good man you married and how well you take care of one another.
    Lauchena was proud of all her kids… she commented on our visit how much she missed Angie and Rick and truly hoped they knew she loved them. She was overwhelmed by your generosity Cindy. I got the impression she wondered if she was really worthy of all the love you shared with her.
    I am pleased I got to meet and know Lauchena but mostly I appreciate the stories you tell Cindy of some of the mischievous behavior Lauchena acted out. The word wiley comes to mind when I think of your Mom.
    Cindy, thank you for all you did to help this elderly lady and the tremendous compassion you showed especially when I’m sure she got on your last nerve (Mom’s do that).
    Angie, Rick and Cindy – please know you are the most beautiful, brilliant and lovely children in existence. A Mother could not be more proud. You are the bright lights that made a difficult life worth living. Lauchena’s love and humor and craftiness live on in you three.
    Once again I offer my condolences for the loss of Lauchena’s body…. her spirit lives on and brightens our world.
