Dear Dixie, I am so sorry to hear of Lu’s passing. He was a good man. I always looked forward to Tuesdays when I worked at Charlie’s, so I could see you both. You and Lu’s family will be in my prayers. Much love and peace, Marci.
Lu, it was such a pleasure to have known you. You always had a great smile and positive attitude that you carried everywhere with you! Even better, you were blessed with sharing the last years of your life with Dixie, who also was always smiling, happy, so upbeat and full of life!
Dixie, this is going to be one of the hardest things you ever have to go through. The grieving process is different for everyone. The emotions are many. There is no time limit, no rules. You have two families now, reach out. You have many friends that love you too, ask, when you need them. Remember, Lu loves you with all his being, he is around you, in your mind and in your heart.
Lu will be missed by many on the dance floor. We so enjoyed watching Lu and Dixie having a great time and especially Lu as "Sonny" with Jackie B and me and his great Elvis costume! Prayers and love with Dixie and the family, Vicki Carlson
