Carol, Brenda, David and families,

I was sad to hear about Lillian. She was such a sweet and wonderful woman. Mom thought highly of her as you know. I am happy she did not suffer and I know you are also.
My thoughts and prayers are with you and I know she will be missed in the Nebo area.

I hold fond memories of those days many years ago at church and potlucks.

With sympathy,

To Lillian's family: Condolences and sorrow for your loss. I am the daughter of her cousin, Darrell Pearson. I have very fond memories of my family visiting Lillian and Dallas. She was always so gracious and a kind lovely person. She often arranged for Joyce Barton to be there when we came so we could play together and become best friends. I know she will be missed by all of you who have wonderful memories of your own.

Sharon (and Jim)
