What moves through us is a silence, a sadness, a longing for one more day, word, touch and we may not understand why you left us, but little by little, we begin to remember not that you are gone, but that you lived! And that your life gave us memories too beautiful too forget! You will be missed my friend.

Ilia: Through the sadness of our loss I shall always think of the bright light in your laughter, the glint of your eye and the fullness of your spirit. You lifted us up...whether in joy or simply in your presence of feeling this life so completely. If you were one word - it would be ‘effervescent’! You lit up a room, made us all love you, and made us grateful to have you in our lives. You gave us this gift without resistance and I thank you for the little time we had. Rest In Peace friend.

Darbi- your loss is unfathomable. I hope we all find the courage, bravery and love to give your family sustained support that is commensurate with the joie de vivre and delight that Ilia consistently served up to us over the years. We love you and hope you will lean on us. B + G

The family respectfully requests that tomorrows proceeding is limited to family only and asks that you continue to keep us in your thoughts and prayers.

Plans for a memorial are in the works for when we can all safely gather to properly celebrate Ilia's life. We will be in touch with details to follow.

Please feel free to leave a note. We will read them all.

Thank you.
