I had the pleasure of working with Lu for four and a half years. She was so kind and caring. It comes as a shock to hear of her passing, but her strong belief in Jesus, I know, carried her to her final resting place. The world has lost a beautiful soul, but she is now rejoicing in the arms of Jesus. Rest easy sweet friend. You are dearly missed.
