    “Lu” was as dear a person as you could ask for. She always had a great sense of humor mixed with her loving, caring spirit. She opened the door of her heart as well as her home to those who were in need whether physically or emotionally; always ready with a smile and a hug. I was her hairdresser for years while I conducted business in Silver Creek, NY. She was more that just a client to me; she was a friend and she always brought a smile to my hectic days. I know she will be remembered and missed.

    Norb & Family – Our deepest sympathy to you along with all of your family. I have many wonderful memories of times spent with Lu at family functions though out the years especially of those from my childhood. I will always remember her for the kind, generous, caring person that she was and for her never ending energy and spirit! She had a way of making everyone feel very special. I remember back to when she used to share her beautiful voice at Christmas dinners at our Grandma’s house. She will surely be missed by all and especially her little furry friends which she so adored. Please accept our apologies for missing the services. We just found out about it and would have definitely have been there if we had known. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your children along with all of my cousins.
