When I was a little girl, I remember going to Aunt Mary's house in the Spring Branch area of Houston. Lillian, Kay and Patsy would comb and style my hair. I loved watching them put on their make-up. They would show me their party dresses. Lillian wa so soft spoken and pretty. Such sweet memories of my cousins and Aunt Mary. Rest in peace Lillian. May the Lord comfort the loved ones you left behind.

My Aunt Lillian was a kind, sweet and caring person.... Easy to talk to... She allowed me to take her two children on weekends that I didn't work to the zoo, and many fun places i thought they would enjoy.... My uncle Bobby was so in love with her and he always called her sweet lilly.... he would just grin when he walked in the room with her....
She was a treasured part of our family and she will be missed.... I have nothing but great fun memories of her....
