Lillian was my dear friend for over 40 years. Fond memory of when she went trick or treating with me and my boys. Also, she and Tony went with us to Gamecocks Spring Game 1995 when Brad Scott had invited Corey down to visit. Lillian the most faithful Gamecock Fan I knew and yet she loved us (although we are Clemson fans)! So saddened by the loss of my dear friend.

It was a pleasure getting to know Lillian while I was a nurse for Tony. She had true love and dedication to him. May you Rest In Peace sweet lady and we will take great care of Tony.

So sorry to hear of Lillian's death
She was a great friend
My thoughts and prayers are with her sister and niece.
Those Carolina Gamecocks sure lost a dedicated fan. She and Tony were Gamecocks all the way.
Prayers for Tony as he has been left without his love and his caregiver.
