I grew up with the Fields Family. Never a day passed by that I ever heard Lillian say a bad word to anyone. She was the example of True Class and Dignity. Always welcomed me with that big smile. Every post on FB was Powerful and Empowering. Truly will miss our Angel of Schlobohm. Deepest Condolences to the Fields Family from my mother Roberta Allen and me.
