Lucille was one of my favorite customers at Walmart. She was always smiling and updating me on her Vance treatments. She always said she was going to beat cancer. A couple of days before she went into the hospital she was so happy. She told me she only had 2 more treatments left. She told me cancer thought it was going to beat me but I’m going to beat cancer and she was happy! She fought a good fight! I’m going to miss seeing her! My thoughts and prayers are with the family! Love you Ms Lucille always and forever!
