Grew up down Las Quatas Rd in Encino, Ms. Lile was my momma (Judy Escalante’s) best friend. We grew up and went our separate ways. But, our childhood memories in our hearts and minds will forever be with us. Ms. Lile you were an amazing neighbor and a 2nd mom to all the neighborhood kids growing up. I hope when you see my momma in paradise and you tell her we miss her dearly and we’re ok. Rest In Peace Ms. Lile and know you will be missed by your family and friends. Love you.
