I am writing on behalf of Dolores Bodendieck. Dolores and Lucienne were very special friends. Dolores enjoyed spending time with Lucienne at church and other times. They enjoyed each other's friendship and sharing stories. Dolores will miss Lucienne very much. Dolores will not be able to attend this morning although she wanted to be there very much. Her ability to get around well will keep her from attending due to the location. Dolores will cherish her memories of their time spent ❤ together
