I will miss the many times Lillian & I spent together. She was the sister I didn't have. It gave me
comfort to know she was taking care of Mother those last days. Lillian once told me she babysit me when I was little. When Lee and I came to South Carolina she was the first one I called. I wish I could have been there for her service, but it wasn't to be. Remembering her the last time we spent together is best. I would call her about every 10 days, I will miss those talks. she loved her
family & worried about each of them. I have enjoyed looking at the pictures on line. Thanks for sharing. In loving memory Lillian by your cousin Doris Melba Whitmire Carl

Lillian and Mom were best friends for many years. I know they are busy catching up in heaven. They have eternity to praise the Lord, meet with Eldora, Esther and others from Emmanuel, and have a great time together. She will be missed by those she left behind, but welcomed by those she met in heaven. Love you all!

My mother Lucy Steele really thought the world of Lilian. I hope they are visiting each other in Heaven.
I know you have wonderful memories.
