    Lucy was our neighbor on Hope road for almost 15 years. My wife and I shared garden vegetables with her. Many nights we could hear the clogging from the barn while she taught clogging. A wonderful lady who always had a smile ready. Our condolences to Russ and the family. Rest in peace lucy.

    Our condolences go out to Kevin and Cheryl Barnes and the rest of the family. Kevin and Cheryl are in our home group at Grace Church in Indiana. We have prayed for Kevin’s mom Lucina since she was found to have cancer. We are grateful to God that Lucina’s pain seemed to be less than some experience, and that she did not have a long period of incapacitation as some others do. We have a great and merciful God!

    We have sent a memorial gift in Lucina’s honor to the Holy Scripture Lutheran Church.

    I am so sorry for the Barnes family. I send my prayers to you all.
    I remember Cathy’s mom as a happy adventurer. She always had a big heart and a joyful spirit. Her smile could melt your heart. Thinking of you.
