    So sorry to hear of Lucy passing. My mother, Margaret Rogerson Weeks grew up on Leigh Farm and Lucy was her best girlfriend. Mama and Daddy O. J. “Peter” Weeks knew Lucy’s family and we use to visit her at Okisco. In mama’s things she kept she had the newspaper article of Jimmy Ball retiring. I would like to get some copies of the Walter Ball family for my book.
    May God comfort all of you and give you the strength and encouragement needed in your time of grief. She is in a much better place and knowing that can give you peace even in this difficult time. God Bless.

    I am so sorry for your loss. Although, I do not know your family personally, I would like to share some encouraging thoughts from the Bible. The Bible provides comfort during these difficult times. Revelation 21:3-4 states, And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. Very soon now, we will never experience losing our loved ones in death. May these words give you a new hope.

  11. Durwood & Joy Willis

    Your in our prayers and thoughts. So sorry for your loss. May our Lord give you comfort during this time.
