  2. Love, grace, hospitality, smart, witty…these are the words that come to mind when I think of Mary Lillian. She knew no stranger and was always willing to help anyone in need. She embraced her Florida “relatives” as if we were her very own and we loved her right back!

  5. Bill and all,
    Please know that you are all in my prayers. I absolutely love the photo of Mary with her big, beautiful smile. Memories are wonderful and that smile is precious to me. She brightened many a day for me and many others at Minor. I am sorry that I have a commitment tomorrow morning that can’t be changed or I would be there with you to celebrate Mary’s life.
    With love,

  6. Mary was a ray of sunshine and was the most kind, good-hearted and generous person I have ever known. Those we hold closest to our hearts never truly leave us. They live on in the kindness they have shared and the love they brought into our lives. There are no words to ease your pain and grief. I know how very much she loved her family and her precious grandchildren. Bill, Rob, Kessa & Andy, you are in my thoughts & prayers. It will be the little things that you will remember, the quiet moments, the smiles, the laughter. And although it may seem hard right now, it will be the memories of these little things that help to push away the pain and bring the smiles back again.

  7. Soon the “God of all comfort” will put an end to sickness and death for all time. Isaiah 33:24 My sincere condolences to the family.

  8. “The angels are always near to those who are grieving, to whisper to them that their loved ones are safe in the hand of God”.

  9. I’m deeply sorry for your loss. Death is never an easy thing to experience. I hope this scripture at Rev.21:3-4 gives you some comfort.

  10. Mary’s service was one of the most wonderful I have ever attended. Your heartfelt words helped give all of us peace during this time. I miss her beautiful smile, quick laugh, and tender heart. I feel so fortunate to have felt the love she had for each of you—her fantastic family. She was very wonderful lady.
