Home store at Macys and Intimates/Kids
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.

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.
Sending our thoughts and prayers,
Tom and Janice Brooks
