We are sorry for the loss of your mother.

A mother is the center of the circle for a family.
May you all be able to shed tears together and continue to spin that circle with the memories of her presence.

We are so sorry. Lillian was a great lady. When I was growing up she was like a second mother to me, especially when we were camping. We will all miss her dearly. Our sympathies to the whole family.
