I've only known Lillian for the past 5 years. As a volunteer at Woods Crossing, I had the blessing of visiting her every Monday. She loved to talk about dancing. It's nice to know about her life. I will miss her so much. She's a wonderful lady. My prayers are with you but I know she's now rejoicing with the Lord.
