Lucy, You were my first friend at Tucker. You were my mentor. I wouldn't have the teacher I was without you. I am so grateful that we had almost 10 years of weekly coffee meetings. They changed during corona but you graciously hosted us in your home! You will live forever in my heart and memories. I love you.
