I so wish I could have celebrated Lillian's life with the family. But a small part of her remains in all of us. For that, I am thankful.

The lovely pictures brought back so many memories. She was such a beautiful young woman, and she retained the same qualities as she grew older. Childhood memories from all our extended family gatherings - I remember Lillian as being the petite woman who exuded quiet, gentle kindness and compassion, yet she was a remarkably strong woman! She consoled me more than anyone else did when my mom passed 21 years ago - I'll never forget. I'm sorry to have missed the opportunity to see Lillian in recent years; still, the memories from long ago will endure forever.

Really lovely pictures, I'll be sure to show my dad next time we are with him. Really like one of the last ones of her in a lawn chair outside, so relaxed and so pretty. My dad always said he liked to dance with Lil, she was a good dancer and she was so light! Glad we got to spend time with her at the weddings, and happy that you got to spend so much of life with her. Tom & Karen
