Our sincere sympathy to Nadine, Randy, and their families. My mom and dad, Earl and Thelma, along with my in-laws, Dorie And Herb, shared so many great times together. They looked forward to the monthly "Culture Club". Not much culture, but many laughs, card games, fun. Gerry provided the Norwegian jokes, and Lillian baked delicious sweets for all! The recent years were difficult for Lil, and for many of her friends, but my dad surely enjoyed sitting with her for chapel at the Benedictine Health Center. I guess now we should continue to bask in those wonderful memories of them together having fun. Lillian was a soft-spoken, gentle, gracious woman who always had a smile to share!

Naydean, Rand, and families. Our hearts are with you. I wish I was closer so I could be there for the service. Auntie Lil has always been very special to me. Alot of fond memories and lots of laughter come to mind. Often times I think about the summers I spent at your house. Good memories, lots of fun and hoping the memories will bring you comfort during this time of loss. Auntie Lil will always be with me in spirit!
