Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Lots of good times were had by all during our ball playing days. You are a special family, keep that bond that your MOM had for you all. God Bless. James Webb, May 27, 2008 My condolences go out to Luciana's family especially her children. I knew she was special. I was so sad to hear of Luciana's death today. When I heard that she had passed, I cried. We were the best of friends but never we spoke as much as we wanted too. That hurts me and still hurts me. I should have kept more in touch/ ---I am really sorry for all the lost time.----- I felt deep sadness and sorrow when this message was sent to me here in Austin, tx. My deepest sympathy goes out to her children, knowing they had one of the greatest "MOM's What I truly remember about Chana was that she was always happy and cheerful when I spoke to her, always giggling or laughing. A beautiful woman and a good person. That just shows the strength of character she had. She was a woman of great beauty, compassion, class and dignity. We had a lot of good fun times.I pulled out one of my old photoalbums to reminisce of the good times we had shared. She was always a very beautiful person inside and out and just full of life. She was full of laughter and was living life to its full potential. I use to think to myself, "this person is blessed to be able to be walking around always happy and in a good mood". I will always remember her as funny, cheerful, and a loving Mother. I will tell you what she use to tell me about my mother. To keep your mother's memory alive the best way you can. Be not afraid to ask for help when needed and be not ashamed to cry when times get tough. Also, know that you are not alone, for you have many people who love you and will be there for you in the good times and bad. In my prayers, I will ask the Lord above to Bless especially her children and also her precious Family. You will be greatly missed as a wonderful mother, daughter, sister, niece, cousin and GREAT FRIEND. GOD BLESS YOU, LUCIANA! Chana, You shall never be forgotten! You are a very special flower that God planted into all of our lives, you blossomed around us and help to encourage other flowers around you to bud out and bloom. You are resting now and we look foward to seeing you again in God's Garden one day. You have made a journey that we yet have to make, there is no more suffering or pain for you now. To be absent from the body means to be present with God. Oh, how I look forward to finally obtaining my crown. Please enjoy your new life and know that God loves you and so do we. Your time here was over but you left a lasting empression on the lives that you touched. May God be with your family and friends, and may he comfort them.
