    I have known Lillian for many years through homecare. She was such a sweet lady, it was a privilege to know her, she will be missed by all of us. God bless her as she has earned her wings to fly with you by your side. Prayers to her family.

  2. Mary Director of Buffalo Adult Day Center

    Lillian will be truly missed by all of us at the adult day center. She was a participant for more than 15 years at the day center, helped us create many recipes and had even more laughs. This past spring she had given me the Easter lily that one of her kids gave her and it was done blooming. She said stick it in my garden somewhere. I did and after about 6 weeks it started to have little lilies growing out from under it. The afternoon I heard Lillian passed, I went out to that lily and to my surprise there were 4 blooms on it and 2 open on Monday. I truly believe it was Lillian saying good-bye…in all my years of gardening my lilies don’t bloom in September. Our deepest condolences to all of you…

    I actually never met Lillian, but I was her pen pal for some time when I was in third grade. I don’t know why I stopped writing her and have always regretted not finding a way to get in touch with her again. She was such a caring and kindhearted lady and I’ve thought of her thoughtful letters and presents many times. It broke my heart to know that I waited a little too long to try and get in touch with her again, but I’m glad that we crossed paths. May she rest in peace.
