Condolence & Memory Journal

Dear Aunt Lucy, I will never forget how much you loved and adored all of your nieces and nephews. To most of us you were are 2nd mother, especially for Mary Ann, Patty, Lenny and I since we lived with you, Grandma & Grandpa Benenati in the duplex house on Belvidere.
I will never forget all the fun trips I took with you up to see Aunt Frieda & Uncle Leo in Saratoga, CA the 1st one on a train in 1974 (I was 21) and our last road trip in my V W rabbit in 1984. You cried the whole way home after leaving Uncle Leo, Linda and Leonard because you thought that was the last time you would see them.
You saw them at least 6 or 7 more times.
Thank You cousins Dr. Joe Benenati & Marguerite Kell for all your love and time you shared with our precious Aunt Lucy. Thank You Marguerite for sending me Aunt Lucy's gift.
Until we reunite in heaven, peaceful rest be granted to you Aunt Lucy our heavenly Angel. Love from your niece and family, Rozzie

Aunt Lucy, you were like a second mother to us. I will never forget waiting for you to get home from work. As soon as we saw you coming around the corner, we would run into your open arms. You gave us many beautiful memories.
Love,
Mary Ann Armstrong

Aunt Lucy, I will always remember the time you came to stay with us in San Dimas. You took me to spend a day at the reservoir. I must have been 8. Now that I do the math, you were only 33. The memory lives on.
