Lillie leaves A Legacy of Love, every person had their own special relationship with her. She was the example of love that the bible talks about. She was a giver of all, to all unconditional love and honest feedback to anyone who requested her opinion. She was dependable and motivated by the joy she gave to others, never taking anything for herself, but the gift to others of Joy and Happiness. Like a vapor that appears for a little while then vanishes, leaving so many to wonder what will they do without her helping hand, love and sweet spirit.
Lillie received a well earned, pair of wings on Monday, March 9, 2020, at South East Medical Center. We gain a faithful Angel that will forever watch over us and stand in the gap for us. She will surely be missed and her legacy of love will never be forgotten.
