    I was a teacher in the Boston Public Schools and in September of 1976 I was assigned to the Mario Umana in East Boston as it was opening its doors for the first time. As I walked into the school for the first time,the first person to greet me with such a warm and welcoming smile was Lucy. She was so helpful, kind and personable not only to me but to any and all that walked into the main office and met her open entering it. I had the distinct pleasure of working with her for some seven years and even though I left the Umana in 1983 she is one of those people that you always remember for their kindness, graciousness and class. My sincerest condolences to Lucy’s family and friends on their loss. John Rooney Bradenton, Fl.
