So many tears of loss for all of us left behind and missing Lillian. So many tears of hope in the knowledge that God is holding her, and she is surrounded by Love and family and friends who are in Heaven with her. Lillian is and always will be sunshine in my life and the lives of those who love her. I couldn't have asked for a better sister and friend. May God bless all those mourning with His peace and hope and love. Love always and forever, Lil, from your brother Pete.

To my Great Aunt Lil. Heaven has gained another Angel. You will be missed by so many people. I will miss being able to come over and chat with you while visiting Pap. I always remember going to your house in Windber when I was a kid and getting to pet your cats and dogs. You were such an animal lover and I loved that about you. I think I got my love for animals from you. I can still remember one time you and I were visiting my Grandma and we saw a stray cat and ended up going and getting it some food so at least it would be able to eat. You are so sweet and kind and I love you so much and miss you dearly. I think I may have gotten my love for hummingbirds from you as well. Rest in Peace Dear Sweet Aunt Lil, I love you always and I'll never forget you.
