So sorry to hear about Lillian. I was one of her Caregivers at River Birch until I got hurt last year and had to leave. I was her "weekend girl" as she called me because I only worked weekends. She'd always ask me to come in during the week to take care of her. She told me no one made her waffles like I did. She was a true sweetheart. I'm sorry I wasn't there for you in the end Lilly. I'd hoped to be. May God Bless your family and hold them close in this sad time. God has called Home another beautiful Angel. Rest in Peace Lillian. Love you.

Cassie is my dearest and closet friend since childhood. We were born the same day. Lilly was literally my 2nd mom. I lived with the Becker family for a short time. She was truly the best to me. We had talks all the time and if you knew Lilly they were long, eventful and informative. She really had a positve impact on my life. My condolences to the entire family. She will be missed.
