  1. Lucille was my family’s dearest friend, she spent many hours in my grandmother’s home across the street from Sacred Heart Church in St. Louis. Many fun times are remembered visiting with Lucille and hearing stories from Elsie and Rosanne. The Buda “kids” and I where remembering those get togethers in St Louis at Ollie’s wake on Sunday and found comfort that the Reynolds’ “kids” were together in Colo remembering too.
    Now Lucille, Rosanna, Elsie and Ollie, Lucille’s Mom and sisters can all share together in heaven–what a reunion it must have been. The family is in my prayers and thoughts–we have lost two fine individuals this week, Ollie and Lucille. My best to all of you, Reggie

  2. To the Reynolds Family, I am sorry I wasn’t able to attend the mass today. My heart goes out to you and your family during this time.

  3. Brother Phil,
    I was deeply saddened to hear of your loss of Lucille. I have only the fondest memories of Lucille at the various Council functions at Council 3340 in Littleton. She was always in great humor and greeted everyone as if a long lost friend. Her uplifting smile would brighten any room that she was in. She always took pride in your children and family so please extend to them my deepest condolences.
    God bless,
    Frank Humpherys

  4. Phil: I was shocked to hear about your wife’s death, since I had just seen you on Tuesday. Please extend my deepest sympathy to your children and other family members. Lucille and I had St. Louis roots in common. For 3 years, I lived half a mile away from Harris Teachers College, where she went to school. I was hoping I’d be able to concelebrate at her Mass of Resurrection, but I have prior commitments in Sedalia Sunday afternoon and evening and in Colorado Springs Monday morning. I will “bump” the mass intention at my parish, St. Anne’s, on Tuesday and say mass for Lucille. I have no doubts she was your soulmate. I am truly sorry for your loss at this time, but we both share that confidence of rejoining our loved ones at the Parousia. For now, as the Hispanic saying goes, I walk with you in your sorrow. Take care, Phil! — Fr. John O.

  5. Phil: My heart goes out to you on the loss of your beloved wife, your ‘sweet Lucy.’ I understand and believe, as you do, that she’s safe, now, her mind crystal-clear, and her heart filled with love for the God she sees, the Blessed Mother with whom she now can chat, freely. For both of you, then, a newfound sense of freedom and liberty. You were a wonderful husband, and I know Lucille looks down on you with a big smile and a protective hug. Peace, friend …

  6. Mrs. Reynolds had been my kindergarten teacher at Morton Elementary in Pueblo, CO twenty-two-years ago. She has touched the lives of countless children, including myself. I teach the youth as well and pursue advanced degrees. I can still remember her reading stories to us and showing us how to count and learn our ABC’s. Mrs. Reynold’s had a profound affect on me. “Everything I ever learned, I learned in Kindergarten”. Thank you and I’ll miss you dearly.
    With profound appreciation and love,
    Mike Martinez Jr.
