I am remembering Lucie today. It is hard to believe that it has been 7 years since Lucie died. I miss Lucie everyday, but it is true that time does heal. It was a lovely day in Phoenix, lately we have been having quite a few rainy days. I had lunch with Lucie's good friends, Jane and Mary Lou. We had lunch at Luci's, a delightful restaurant which has a beautiful outside dining area. Jane gave me a vintage milk bottle from Reading Home Dairy, Reading Michigan filled with beautiful bougainvillea from her yard.
I placed the flowers on ice box which use to belong to Lucie and John Protz.Read more
