Lucy’s husband, Rabbi Leo Dee, amazed the world with his grace as he donated his wife’s organs and saved the lives of four people, including a Muslim Arab Israeli from northern Israel.

At the funeral, Rabbi Dee spoke words of healing.

“On Sunday, I talked about looking at the good. Lucy, I have a choice: I could lament over the next 25 years of marriage that I've lost, but I actually feel blessed to have had 25 years of a beautiful marriage with you,” he said.

“If we support the good and reject the evil, then we can all play our part in building a better world,” he added.
