To Rene and family. I am so sorry for your loss. Lilly was my friend for so long I can’t believe she is gone. I will miss our call’s. She was always in a good mood and we had great conversations and laughs about our lives. I will truly miss her. She is now in heaven watching over us all. My condolences to you all. I will keep you in my prayers. Love, Sandra and family

Lilly was the sweet, kindest, and most loving person I had the pleasure of getting to know during my time at LGH. If there was ever an angel on Earth at LGH, it was Lilly. I would talk with her everyday and she would always laugh and smile, even on the hard days. Patients and staff loved her because she made you feel important. She poured her heart into her work and the relationships she built at work and for her friendship, I am forever grateful. No one could ever replace the light Lilly cast on this world and I am so sorry for her loss.

Lilly was truly one of a kind and will be missed dearly. Tears come when I think about never seeing her contagious smile again or hearing her infectious laugh. She was one of my favorite housekeepers on 4Lime and will never forget the “fun” we had while hiding her cart or randomly taking bottles off the cart when she wasn’t looking!! She was always talking about her boys! Rest In Peace sweet Lilly!!

I was fortunate to know Lilly.  She was a beautiful person inside and out with a smile that could brighten the room.  She was one of the kindest people I’ve ever met.  She spoke frequently about her husband and boys.  They were her entire world.  My heart aches for anyone that knew her.  She will be missed by many.  Rest peacefully sweet angel.
