     Lucy loved spending time with her family, relaxing with a book and a glass of wine, or going out with friends. She and David always enjoyed an extensive network of friends, many of who are counted as family today. Lucy loved spending time at the fa ily cottage in Fairhaven, relaxing on the deck with a margarita and her sun visor.
