Lydia will always be remembered fondly by all who knew her. We had the pleasure of working closely with her for many years through the GCCDC and CSMA and I must say that all future events will be lacking without her. I will miss our arguments and our heart-to-heart talks. With deep love and affection to a GREAT person and a TRUE friend, we say “Until we meet again!”
And to Lydia’s family – know that this community has lost a “one-of-a-kind and our hearts go out to all of you.

Dear Buffy your sudden departure has caught all of us off guard. You have been such an inspiration. Always putting a lot on your plate and never refusing to help anyone in need. You have been a great assistant during my busy time of the year and I am so glad that for all these years that you were part of our lives.
My sincere condolences to all her family members.
