I am so sorry for the loss of a sweet, hardworking and friendly woman that Lillian was. She always had a smile and would always take time to stop and talk if she saw me anywhere. All the women that were born in that era had a special quality of kindness that will be greatly missed. We were all better people to have known her.

I was so sorry to find out that Aunt Lil passed, I just got her a Birthday card to have ready to send her, so sad. I haven't seen her for sometime but, always have had fond memories of her growing up. Staying at her house in Bucktown when I was real young, I still think about when crusin' by there & remembering the house on the hillside. I would run into her at the store or P.O. and always would make sure to say Hi...she was a great woman, my thoughts & prayers are with you..
I do have some photos of her with her siblings but don't know how I'd get them to you or if you would want them...you can call me if you like...

Deepest sympathy on the loss of your Mother. I remember her well as a friend of my own Mother, Ruth Morris, and the comradarie they shared at Oakview. May your many memories comfort you during this most difficult time.
