Dear Lillian’s Family,

So sorry to hear of your loss. I remember your mom being full of mischief and laughter. I too remember all the church socials, bike rides, and skidooing. The girls were always up to something and Lillian and her cohorts could often be found sitting around a table laughing and having a good time. May the Lord bring you comfort during this difficult time.

Dear Family's of Lillian,
What a wonderful lady to have know most of my life. When we were just starting Church in Morley our Mom and Dad made instant friends with Ronnie and Lillian. You girls have always been a part of our life and family in one way or another. You must have as many great memories of your Mom as we do of ours. Always had fun going skidooing as a teenager and then ice skating or bonfires. We are thinking of all of you as you go through this time in your live's. Rest assured that Mom has her angel wings and is home where she deserves to be. Love all of you girls.

What a wonderful spirit Lillian had!!! Your mother and I always had wild conversations that were filled with laughter--how she loved a good laugh! May it bring you all a comfort that only our precious Savior, Jesus, can fill us with. I rejoice knowing that Lillian is in the company of so many of our family and that we will meet with her again. Love and Prayers, Mary

Many fond memories with Lillian and Ronnie. All those wonderful get togethers with friends and family. Lillian had to be one of the best Cooks in St. law county. Never forget her chocolate cake with that amazing frosting. Lillian's always brought laughter wherever she went. She loved people and loved the Lord and her church. I will be praying for family in this difficult time. Love to all . Howard Robinson
