My fondest memory is the jam sessions we used to have. Aunt Lily would get up and grab the microphone and the whole room would go quiet just to hear her sing Walking After Midnight by Patsy Cline. She had an Angel's voice and heaven is blessed to have her in the choir. We love you so much Aunt Lily and I will miss you dearly.

Although it's been several years since I've seen Lily, memories of her kindness remain. I especially celebrate with her two of her life's successes: her children Mary Ann and Michael. What precious, kind adults they too became, also passing along Lily's values to their own offspring. Bon voyage, Lily... and thank you for the values you left with us.
