Lillian gave me and my family a very enthusiastic welcome when we visited her church in 2005! We became good friends through the years. I have enjoyed visiting her regularly at Good Samaritan. I will miss her exuberance, sense of humor, thoughtfulness, and red hair & lipstick. The last few years, our family has enjoyed spending part of Christmas Day with her. I also liked to go see her on my birthday; she always made me feel so young. She was always a joy to be around! God has blessed us in many ways through Lillian. I am praying for your peace. Love in Christ, Pam Wessel

I believe my mother, Mildred Sande Jackson, was a long time friend and sorority sister of Lillian. My Mom often spoke fondly of Lillian. I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your loved one and one of the few old friends of my Mom (RIP 5 years ago at 91.)

Miss Lillian, I will miss your smiling face and how you would giggle when you ate dessert first!
I wish you much peace.
