Dr. Linda Grant I extend my deepest condolences to the Thorogood Family. I felt as though I knew Mrs. Thorogood through my sister-in-law, Willie Grant. I even called her "Aunt Lucille". I am also Willie's Asst. Pastor. I went to visit Aunt Lucille a number of times when she was in the hospital. She was truly a strong woman of God! "Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal!" Love and Prayers! Call us if you need us.
