I have so many memories of Lily from Grant School to Washington Jr. High through Mary D. Bradford. We never walked down the street without Lily knowing or more importantly being related to people we met. The fantastic Italian food we ate when we were at her house. She was one of the first to get her driver's license. I still remember "scooping the loop" in the blue Chevy. It isn't the length of the life, it is the size of the foot print you leave while you are here. Her's was enormous.

Lily...you will forever be part of my school memories especially Washington Jr. High* Such a great person to be around* Always good moments when in your company* I remember in sewing class how we had to make those God awful plaid gathered skirts with huge hems and waistbands* Every time Ms. Bond would say, "girls, smoooth the mateeerial", you would look at us and we'd start chuckling because she said it so often and was so earnest about our making our skirts with perfection* It became your mantra even after class to get us laughing* Your name will always come to mind when I think back on my school years as someone who was funny, well liked and a friend to everyone* Miss you, Lily* God keep you in His care until we meet again* Rita

Lily was such a good gal - met her at Washington Jr. High. She was a true leader, always fun. We spent some good times at her house of 27th Street with our girls' club. She was very smart; I always was a little jealous of her in Latin class because I had to work hard, but she was fluent in Italian and found Latin class a breeze. I heard she died in California of leukemia. She looked great and beautifully suntanned when she was at the 25th reunion. Her family should know that she was a very popular girl in school, a very good student and was such fun to be around. God bless the memories we all have of her.
