"Lil was part of our Tuesday girls get together at my mother's home. We all looked forward to visiting and play games especially rummyque. I grew to love Lil. She is a loving, kind, caring person who inspite of her medical situation always had a smile on her face. My mother, Marge is extremely saddened by the loss of her dear friend. Mom and Lil use to take chair yoga together at Fitness Pointe and afterwards would sit in the lounge and have coffee and talk. Lil you will be missed so much by all of us who shared in your lovely spirit and friendship. Nick, Lil's husband is also a gentle and kind man who always was there for his wife. Nick and your family our prayers and thoughts are with all of you. God be with you. Sincerely, Marge Amatulli, Patte and Barry Lau, and Eunice."
