Condolences for the family of “Frances Josephine Lacey”

Condolence from Diane Lamb on November 3rd, 2008 12:00 am

Theresa, Mike and Kathleen, Dan and Linda,and Jeff and Laurie.

My thoughts and prayers are with all of you right now. Jo was a special woman that I was privileged to know on a lot of different levels. The mom next door, a co worker when we were both at UB, and a friend as I became a grandmother myself.

I was thinking last evening after I spoke with Theresa, I’ve known your family almost 50 years Jo introduced me to corn fritters, and cola cake, knowing her before I moved south later in life was almost like an undergraduate course in southern living. She was gracious and smart and strong and it was a privilege to know her.

She will be missed deeply but I know she joined Gordon and my parents and they are all watching over us and our kids.

Again, my thoughts and prayers are with each and every one of you.

Diane Massimi Lamb
