I am so sorry to hear of Lu's passing. She was the only one left of my Grand Father's siblings. I will keep her in my prayers & those who all loved her. I never had a Chance of me meeting her. This saddens me. I am Bert Craft's grand-daughter. My Mother is Madonna Craft. My Aunt Bonnie Craft. They both send their Condolences with love in their Hearts. The Lord has received another Angle. I heard many stories about Lu. All was very good & was a lovable Lady.

I am a granddaughter of Bert's. My mother is his oldest daughter, Donna Lou. I met Lu a few different times at family reunions and once at Uncle Jr's house. She was always laughing and being silly. I loved her just for that reason. Everyone always use to say my mom looked like her more anyone else from the family. I am so very sorry to hear of her passing. I will keep prayers and love close to my heart for the family at this difficult time. My heartfelt love to the family.
