Send Condolence

So sorry for your loss. Lakey was a fine lady, who I knew for years. She was married to Louie, who was like a brother to me. I grew up and Louie was always there, then he went to the Army and I missed him so. He met Lakey, and that was that, he was off to make a good life with a good woman. She was always so full of life,I was just a kid, but now that I am in my Later years it all comes back. She will be sorely missed by anyone that knew her. i saw her About 12 years ago, and she was still full of spunk. I just today heard of her passing, and I wanted to send my sincere condolences for your loss. Through marriage, we were cousins, so a part of the family has left us. At this difficult time, there are still relatives , mourning her loss. With love to the family at this difficult time, Libby Ash Metlika i .

Very sorry to hear about Lakey. We always looked forward to seeing her at 20/20 and she always asked about our family and had nothing but positive things to say about everything.
