A tribute to Lucy Batchelor

My Mom, Lucy Batchelor, is resting tonight at a hospice facility in Pinellas Park, Florida. She was admitted there yesterday afternoon after spending a few days at St. Pete General Hospital due to an advanced case of Diffuse Large B-Cell Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, diagnosed just 10 days ago.
Her rapid decline after diagnosis has been shocking to us all, and this blog is a way for everyone who knows Lucy to publish their tributes, prayers, precious memories, and pictures of her. Please notify any of her friends and relatives that you know and ask them to contribute to this blog which will be read to her as the messages come in and published in a book for her family.

  1. Thank you, Kathy, for inviting the church members to share with you and your mother this difficult time. What a precious gift it is to walk down memory lane and resurrect those dear memories of your mother's influence in other's lives.
    I don't know your mother, but I do know you. I can only imagine how dear your mother is because I see your love for others, your compassion, your love for music. Just reading the couple of entries here, Kathy,it would appear you take after your mom.
    May God support her and your family with peace and grace in these hours of questions and pain.
    We keep all of you in our prayers.
