May the hope at Revelation 21:4 bring Lillian's family comfort during this time; " And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." When this promise is fulfilled, we will never have to experience losing our loved ones in death again! Until then, may all your memories sustain you in the days to come.

My thoughts go out to you and your families. Miss Lillian was one of my grandmother's dearest friends. She was a dearly loved member of the community.

Miss Holiday was the first person I talked to before moving down to Bishops Head. It was on her word about the people, lifestyle and the community, that I made the decision to move to this wonderful community. I have been thinking a lot of Miss Dora in the past few days, not knowing of Miss Holiday's passing. I hope those two friends are now reunited and Miss Holiday is setting Miss Dora's hair and driving her to the store!!

I will never forget how she opened up her home to me on my wedding day, so that all my girls could be together & she even had to get the needle&thread out, but she didn't mind that. We had a good laugh..You Girls she would say. Great Memories of her. She is at Peace with her Lord. Love to all the Family, Glenda

Let you know Dale and Andrew you will be in our prayers.

Carolyn Lewis Harvel May 13 2014 12:00 AM

Andrew, Dale I want you to know I am thinking about you. She did my hair from the time I can remember until after I graduated from school. She really and truly was the only one that could cut my hair because it was so thin and fine. I am truly sorry, she was a very wonderful lady at all times, I never say her when she was unhappy.
