"My sincere condolences to the family and friends of Lill. I did the food pantry at Annunciata with her and would walk her to beautiful little convertible sports car that she drove. She looked so cute driving that. May God rest her soul. "

"So sorry for your loss. Lil was a wonderful, caring person who always brightened the room. She was a longtime member of Annunciata St. Vincent de Paul Society and worked in and for our food pantry until she was no longer physically able. She was a blessing from God who will be sorely missed. "
