Aunt Lucille will be greatly missed. She was very sweet and loved spending her last years at Health Central Park in Winter Garden where she had a wonderful roommate, Maria, who would play cards with her and keep an eye out for her. She would always tell us how she loved living there and that everyone was so nice to her. She loved to play bingo and dominoes. In her earlier years she was a travel agent over in St. Pete. When she was younger she was a milliner in New York where she designed hats for years , with one of her designs being published in a magazine . She had hoped to live to 100 so she could get a birthday card from the President.

Miss Nardi was my Jersey girl, a beautiful soul. You can hear her coming down the halls with her roommate after lunch and playing bingo. She had spunk and rarely wanted to be in her room unless she was watching tv and asking us to give her her ears. We spoke about us both being from New York and both her and my daughters birthday being days apart. She told me about her life and and her family, she loved her nieces that would visit often to see Aunt Lou. I pray that you are at peace and cherish the memories I have of you. God bless you my friend.
