I am so very sorry to hear of Lula's passing. I also regret I could not attend the visitation nor funeral due to previous commitments. The loss of our classmates always leaves a void in our hearts and even though she was in the class behind mine, we all felt like one big class, most of the time. Blessings and condolences to her family.
