Lillian was special. She always welcomed me with a smile and was genuinely glad to see me – as I was to see her. I always came away feeling good —- no uplifted.
Lillian had a bright warm smile and she treated everyone with dignity. I will miss her greatly as I know each of you will miss her also.
She taught me a lot. Her faith in God and her love of her rosary beads and EWTN and of course each member of her family as well as her books was an inspirations to me.
I will certainly miss her for a long time but you all have many memories from over the years that will bring a smile to warm your heart.
Sending each of you my love and prayers.
What a beautiful soul in heaven we all have interceding on our behalf.
Lillian it was a privilege to know you. What a legacy you have left your family with your ability to embrace whatever came your way with strength, gentleness, love and prayer. You survived it all with love in your heart.
May the Lord God shower your Family with the Love and peace that only He can give.
I have a sad heart that we have lost a beautiful woman, but I am happy to think of her being reunited with her husband Jim , and son, Pat.
I will always remember and think of her smile and her genuine kindness.
There was always a warmth that she had and I truly felt her love for me.
I know we were all blessed to have her for the many years.
She will always be in my heart and in my prayers!
May she Rest In Peace
