To the Lucy Family... I met Mr Lucy at the Penguins game at the arena. My husband was JR. and worked at Nicholas Trunking also. We had season tickets and we always spoke to Chris as well as Mr Lucy at every home game. They were wonderful friends, I am proud to have known them. Please accept my condolences to you're family. God bless you all, hugs in support of your loved ones. Take care... Laurie Richmond
