So sorry to hear of Lillian’s passing. Harry and I lived on Island Point across from Nick and Lillian. The neighbor ladies enjoyed many luncheon outings with Lillian as well as Harry and I dancing at the VFW. Years after we moved from Florida Lillian and I kept in touch thru e-mail and she would always say prayers when I sent her my prayer chain. She was a sweet lady who loved her family dearly and we were happy to have her as a friend.
Carol and Harry Dunlap
