Lillie, always remembered my families birthdays and would give us a call. She was a very loving person and a sweet cousin. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.

Aunt Lillie was truly one of a kind. She never forgot a birthday and was so full of life. She kept going no matter what and I hope I have half her stamina when I get older. I will miss her phone calls that would begin with "Whatcha know good?" I will also miss those times with her and my cousin as we visited cemeteries and old homeplaces with Aunt Lillie relating all our family history. She never forgot a thing! I know she is at peace now in heaven with all her family that she cared so much about. I love you Aunt Lillie! Sandra Jean
