To be loved by Lillie was a priceless privilege! I was so fortunate to been able to meet with her once a month to do her hair! She always had a smile followed by a big hug! I loved to hear her stories of Uncle Dick and the special life they shared! They were two peas in a pod! I can only imagine what a great reunion it was as she entered her eternal home and was greeted by Jesus and Uncle Dick was there with his great big smile! I want only to say thank you to Lillie for loving on me and giving me memories to last until I too will see her again! I love you Lillie!

Although I only saw my cousin a few times, she was always smiling. She had the ability to make me feel very very special with the kind and caring heart she had. Prayers that the family will feel Gods loving arm to comfort them.

While I did not know Lillian Braun personally, I did know her son Tim Braun quite well. Her passing was given to me by a friend of Tim's and mine, Gary Starr. I am so sorry to hear of this and firmly wish to pass on my sympathy to Tim and the rest of Lillian's family. May you all find God's healing hand and rest in His strength.
I'm sure you all are rejoicing in her memories, and knowing she is safe in the hands of Jesus Christ where she will find her eternal rest.
