Lillian and my mother selma grew up together. My grandmother and her mother were good friends. I have many wonderful memories of times we spent together. She always made me feel like she was happy to see me. Such friendship was more like being extended family. I am so glad my mom and I were able to spend her birthday with her 2 years ago. Love to her family.

My husband and I are so sorry to hear of Lillian's passing and send our sincerest condolences to all of her lovely family.
When Lillian and I met, we quickly became good friends. Over the years we spent most days talking, cooking, laughing and sharing our life stories. She was very special and made my world a little brighter. I can still see her beautiful smile and will carry it with me always.
May she rest in the arms of Jesus.
