Memories of Lucille
Lucille was a beautiful and smart young girl. I wish I could have met her. My mother has said so many things about her any time she hears or sees anything about this she cries so much. She never deserved what happened to her. The day I that meet her will be a great day.
    -- (Vito Siciliano, Nephew)
Lucille, I never met you. But I knew you well through your sister Annette and your mother. When I visit my grandparents at Queen of Heaven, I always stop to see you and say a prayer. God bless you, sweet one.
    -- (Linda, Friend)
Lucille, I know only of you through my Auntie Jesse. You are my cousin. I think of you often and pray for you. My aunt tells me that you were beautiful and how she would fix your hair for school sometimes. May God bless you and please take care of my daddy, Rocco, your uncle, in heaven.
