Lucy Blair Hutchings
Practically Perfect in Every Way
Born July 20, 2010 to Charles and Eliza Hutchings. Died October 13, 2011.
Lucy loved her family, especially her brother, Jack, and her twin sister, Hazel. She is survived by her parents, grandparents Blair and Laurie Hutchings and McKay and Pamela Platt, and great grandparents Juan and Darlena Hutchings and Patricia Woodbury. She will be greatly missed by her aunts, uncles and cousins, and her Rebecca.
Lucy was born with a heart defect called Tetralogy of Fallot. She endured numerous surgeries and procedures, most of which took place in her hometown of Kansas City. Our daughter spent her last months in the Cardiac ICU at Primary Children’s Medical Center. She learned that making others happy made her happy, and she endured every burden with her unforgettable smile.
She had a great love for the nurses and doctors that took care of her, and everyone that would stop in to say hello. She was loved by everyone who knew her, and even by strangers who were never able to meet her.
Lucy taught us so much in her short life. She showed us how to be patient and long-suffering through our afflictions. She taught us to show kindness to everyone, and how to forgive those that cause us pain.
Lucy never walked and barely crawled, but she loved to dance to her favorite shows: Mary Poppins, Tangled, and her sign language videos.
Although her death was completely unexpected and unwelcome, it was her time, and we know Our Heavenly Father wanted her back. She was feisty, and could have fought on if she was supposed to. We always knew her existence in this life was pending the will of Our Father. We are only too grateful for the opportunity to know her while she was here. We love you, Lucy! May angels lead you in.
