    In celebration of Auntie Lil, I quietly observed you as a child. You dearly Loved your girls. I loved your smile in the presence of your family. You took such care and I remembered all the little things that meant so much in pleasing those who Loved you. You are definitely the epitome of a “Great Mother”. As a child you and Uncle Eddie made me smile always, I know you are with the Angels. God Bless you.
