Lillian was a wonderful woman. She was the first person we ever rented a home from. We couldn't have asked for a better person for our landlord. Sincere thoughts and sympathy for the family. Lori and Tony Abel

Lulu you were and are a very special person. Even though I did not meet you until I was an adult, you always treated me as a daughter. You were there in good as well as bad times. Always on my side no matter what. That is the kind of friend you are, not just to me but anyone who was in your life. I do not know any mother who loved her son any more than you did and I know Pete loves you equally. You also loved your family with all your heart. I have way to many memories to try to list , we had a lot of good times. I remember when we did the glamour shots, that was a great day. I also took my first cruise as a family member with you, now I go with my family every year. See what you started. lol. I remember going to Hawaii and taking my best friend , that was the best vacation I ever had. Rest in peace knowing you did a good job with your family and they will be fine because of you. LOVE YOU.
