I have known Lila since I was 15 yrs old. She was the most honest and trusting person next to my Mom (Linda McCullough). I tried to talk to her everyday or go see her. She was funny, kind, a very loving person and would tell you how it was good or bad. When my mom passed she was the only thing that kept me together I truly loved her and valued her opinions. I will miss all of our talks and adventures. I know she is up in heaven with my mom and they are 2 special angels looking out for the people they loved. I will never forget you.

Your Mother was always so sweet to me. I met her through my friendship with Linda McCullough. The last time I saw her was when she was South when Linda passed. The two of them always made me laugh! We spent the afternoon looking at pictures of Linda and your Mom. We laughed and had a wonderful afternoon. I’m so sorry for your loss. May God bless you during this very sad time.
