  9. Sincere condolences to the entire Luck family. As a kid I don’t even want to speculate how much time I spent with my feet under your mother’s table! Nellie was in some respects like a second mom. Even with her hands full with her own family, another for lunch was no issue. You don’t even gain an appreciation of that acceptance until much later in life! Your mom was a special soul, kind to a fault,stern when she had to be. She always had a smile and a kind word regardless of the struggles she may have been facing. May your memories sustain you all at this sad time and bring a smile to your face as you reflect on your mom/grandma in quieter days to come.
    Even as I type this I hear her voice in my mind and see her kind face in my memory. With those memories imparted over a lifetime she will continue to exist in each of us.
    Sincerely, Jim and Shelley Kelly
