To: Dolly, David, Dane, Jessica and family my deepest sympathy goes out to you all. You knew your mother (Lillian) all your life I knew her for short time, but in that short time I come to see why you all loved her so much. I will miss her and her words of encouragement for the ministry, when I would call her to check on her. I'm glad we share the same hope for the future of a paradise as Jehovah has promised us, because I look forward to seeing her then.

Lil and I shared many things together, even Divorce and Jobs. We worked side by side at Added Dimensions and aided Pegi Malone to become one of our Spiritual Sisters. She was our Manager. We knew we could always count on the other one being there when we needed a Shoulder to cry on. And we did some Crying... Lillian was a TRUE FRIEND..... I will MISS her very much... Looking forward to seeing her again in the New World and hearing her JOLLY LAUGHTER!!!! All my LOVE to the Family Donna

I know we will all miss that stern voice when she had something to teach you. She was the best boss that I ever had and a great mother to ALL the kids she raised. Even the ones that she did not give birth too. She had a big smile and a big heart. She was one tough lady that didn't let anyone walk all over her. A tough life made her that way but she didn't let that change who she really was, a beautiful women that still found love to give everyone and asked nothing in return. I miss her already but I know she is at peace.

I did not know Lillian but my mom was very fond of Monica and Andrea.
She was a member of the Congregation until she passed. On her
behalf I send our familys sympathys and prayers on her behalf. She
was a devout Jehovah's Witness and we thank the Lord for her
years spent with the Congregation. On behalf of Vernice Myers or
as Sister Myers as she was called we know she always loved
Jehovah and was always there when needed.
