    candle 7To the family of Ms Lillie, She was quite a character with a beautiful soul. I got to know her as I was one of her caregivers. We became great friends, and I loved her dearly! She talked about her family alot and it was apparent that she loved them very much. I will never forget the time she was aggravated with me because I did not know how to make milk gravy, one of her favorites. While she was napping, I called my daughter who googled how to make milk gravy. Wa la…..she had her milk gravy! I told her about it later and we both got a good laugh. She was an amazing lady and I know she will be missed by all. My deepest and sincere condolences, prayers, and sympathy to all her friends and family.
