  • Victoria Vieu Barker I have been thinking of Aunt Lil all month and am so sorry for our families loss and the loss of another kind soul in this world. I have been gone from home for so long that I am surprised at the changes in the area each time I return, even though I have seen them before. In my mind I remember our street, Chillem Drive and the neighborhood as an open playground with my Aunt Lil at the top of the hill. The trees were all saplings and the surrounding area open countryside which us cousins roamed like explorers. We always had a safe home base at Lil and Bull's or my house (Ray and Betty's). Our parents provided a great place for us to grow up. Aunt Lil's smile, sense of humor and kind twinkling eyes are etched in my memory where I will cherish them. It gives me a sense of peace to know we are all part of that spiral of love. Even though some of us will be out of sight for a time, the circle is continuous and will not be broken. I pray you all will be comforted by your own warm memories and the promise of reuniting with those who have crossed over before us. That will be a Great Day. Peace and Love, Cousin Vicki

The Bible gives us some comfort. It remindes us that in the future we may see our love ones again' God is going to resurrect our love ones and they and us will have the prospect of living for ever on this earth. Trust in God, have hope and read in your Bible, God's promise for the future at, Isaiah 25:8, Revelation 21:4 andJohn 5: 28,29
  • Rich Satterfield My Dear Aunt Lil. I have so many fond memories of her and the family. Uncles Bull and Ray building the houses. All the picnics we used to have in her giant back yard. I remember the big galvanized tubs full of ice with the coldest pop and beer in the world and always good stuff to eat. Many great Holidays and Birthdays. She was a good hearted woman full of love and joy and always shared that with all of us. Although gone on to be with others in Heaven,she'll always have a very warm spot in my heart reserved for her. Condolences and my love, Rich S
  • Barb & Dan Crabtree Lill was not only my Aunt but a very special friend. I have a lifetime of many cherished memories with her. I will always appreciate the encouragement, wisdom, and love she gave to me through the years. Aunt Lill's cooking was second to none. My favorite was her homemade potato salad and Dan loved her chocolate chip cookies. She was always loved and will be greatly missed. Barb & Dan Crabtree
