Lil was a special friend of a former neighbor of mine, Joy Hancock. The two were sorority sisters many years ago and when Joy moved to Brady Lane a few years back they met up again. Lil was very kind to Joy, taking her to church every weekend and visiting her frequently after she went to live in Rosewalk nursing home. I was always grateful that Joy had such a nice friend to visit with. Joy was home bound for quite some time and missed getting out and socializing. Lil filled that void for her and cheered her up so much. Joy misses her terribly and I wanted to make sure that Lil&s family knew how much she meant to her. Our thoughts are with you and your families.

I was so sad to hear of Lil&s &Mrs. Strong" passing. What a total surprise. I know I saw her either that day or the day before while shopping at Macys. She was one of my favorite customers and always gave me a gift as my other coworkers. We all loved her at Macys. She will be missed.

To Lil&s Family,
I wanted to give you my deepest condolences on the passing of Lil. She was my friend. I work in the Home Store at Macys and often had the honor of helping Lil. She was a very sweet woman. She would always look for me when she came in to shop. She loved the clearance tables! I wanted you to know that she always brightened my day when she came in. Tomarrow will be a little darker knowing that when I go into work I will not have the chance to see her there. She was very kind to me even when I was new and she often told my bosses that I was the best associate there. Christy High also was her friend and Lil told us that we were her favorites. Christy and I will miss her very much and as I have said, Macys will not be the same with out her. I will keep you all in my thoughts and hope that in this time of mourning you will know that she was loved by all.

To Lil&s loved ones,

I&m very sorry for your loss. I didn&t really "know" Lil, but I met her at one of her favorite stores, Michael&s craft store in Lafayette, back in November of 2007. She made an impression on me, so I felt a need to share it with you. Lil and I were looking at the holiday silk flowers and one of us struck up a conversation. At the time, I had been dealing with the illness of my elderly father, which she didn&t know at first, but somehow our conversation turned to her taking care of her husband and and we continued talking. I was impressed by Lil&s energy and good attitude about life and I enjoyed our conversation so much. I will always remember her saying to me that "There are worse things in life than dying." She didn&t know how helpful that was to me because I didn&t know either until I took those words home with me. Someone, who was in their later years, had expressed how I would guess a lot of older people feel after having many life experiences. I sent Lil a Christmas card that year and wrote a note to her. I didn&t hear from her, but I knew she was busy with her husband. The day I met her she mentioned her two nephews who were so good to her and her stepdaughter that lived too far away. I hope she inspired your lives as she did mine. God Bless her and each of you.
