    We will miss"Luts", our oldest first cousin. Luts and Joyce devoted their entire life to raising their four sons in New York City which is quite an accomplishment. We stayed in touch with each other , visited and told stories and always laughed and laughed until it hurt. Lucien was a Montford Point Marine. He was a proud Marine and served his country during World War 2...We will miss him....a true family-man, American Hero and wonderful person. Mike And Connie Labat
