Aunt Lucy was a saint with a great love that had great strength behind it! I know heaven is full of great joy and I know Gramps Ditta(Lorito) and all of our family that is in heaven with him had their arms held out waiting to hug her! I talked with her a few times since my grandparents passed and we shared pictures and letters in the mail. My heart was always full of joy when speaking with her. She will be sadly missed by many.

Aunt Lucy will be remembered fondly. I visited her many, many weekends while at college in Hammond for good meals, strawberries, and great conversation. My thoughts and prayers for her family.

I will miss my Aunt Lucy. I remember when i would go to her strawberry patch and pick strawberrys, then go inside and make pies and cakes. She would always tell me, while we were cooking, "erin go wash your hands" because of course i would touch my face, or itch my arm and she would say "people dont want to eat your germs.". But she had a heart of gold and always smiling all the time. She will always be missed. Love you Aunt Lucy, from your lil Erin.

Was very saddened to hear of the passing of Miss Lucy. I am a frequent visitor of the Farmers' Markets in Baton Rouge, sometimes just dropping by to say 'hello' if she was there. It was a post from Red Stick Farmer's Market that I heard of this sad news. She obviously made quite an impact there.

I met Miss Lucy many years ago at the Red Stick Farmer's Market.
Each week I would faithfully stop by her booth & talk - she was incredibly kind, always gracious, & the best darn cook in the entire universe!!! To me, she was a role model of how to live life fully. She will be very missed.

Dear Josie, Bill, Lisa and all the family,

We loved Lucy! The first moment she came into our lives we were overwhelmed by her love, generosity and faith. Once she did one of our gatherings she became the mainstay of every event. It seemed to me that people just became more generous, more loving and giving by being near her.

Josie and Lisa would accompany Lucy at Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas full of gifts and sharing her same smile and life.

Lucy Mike's legacy should never be forgotten. She was generous with her time, her knowledge, her faith, and her love. A hard working woman who gave to others willingly and freely, she lived the Catholic Christian command to love God and one another.
One story must be told as an example of her strength, determination, and love. Every year, Miss Lucy hosted school children on her strawberry farm where she would show them how the farm worked. It was a field

We are so honored to have met Ms. Lucy in her home and tasted her
wonderful cookies. She was such a joy to know and offered us much
kindness when we visited. She offered to make bread for us and teach
us how to make it.

We know she is sharing all her recipes in heaven. God bless her and all
her family.
