    When a woman gives you more than she has, that was Lil. Always helping and always lending a helping hand. She never said no and could always make you smile when you just thought there was no light at the end of the tunnel. Lil you have always been there for us! Hope we made you proud! No more pain, sorrow or hurt, only love, joy and peace be with you! Leigh & Kim I will always be near if you need anything!!! Were going to miss you, but as I always say …this is not goodbye. Until we meet again!

    Lilian, what fun times we shared. You were a great friend to me. You will be missed. I’m glad you are not suffering now. May you Rest In Peace in the loving arms of our Lord. I’ll be here for the girls and family. You have two wonderful daughters and grand children (and great grandson) who loved you dearly along with Randy and many others. Knowing you was a blessing to me!
