2 Timothy 4: 6-7, “For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought a GOOD fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.”

She accepted Christ at an early age and was baptized by the late Rev. Samuel Jones at Providence #1 Baptist Church, LaPlace, Louisiana.
She attended East St. John High School and did not let illness keep her from achieving her General Education Diploma.
Luciana had a quiet spirit, but she was not shy. She gave a heart-felt smile to every and anybody. She was very independent. Cooking was not her favorite thing, yet she loved to eat, entertain and be entertained especially on holidays and birthdays. Her favorite TV show was Martin. Laughter to her was a great medicine. Laughter and her faith in God helped her as she kept a positive outlook on her life. God’s word always lifted her spirit and helped her combat negative emotions, negative people and negative emotions during her illness.
