Lillian is a kind and beautiful person, and without a doubt the angels were singing upon her arrival [she was probably singing with them😊]. I don’t think Lillian ever met a stranger. I mostly would see and visit with Lillian and Walter, a lovely, devoted couple, at Peachtree Mall on their “mall walk”. I did not know until today that Lillian entered the next chapter of her life. My prayers are with her family. Love, Sallie Averitt Miller
