    Teddy, I am so sorry for your loss. Your Mom was such an amazing person who always had a smile on her face. She was one of the best people I have ever known. When I got hurt she would sit with me and pray and just encourage me when I just wanted to give up. She knew just what to say and was the best friend a person could ever ask for. She will be greatly missed. I loved her so much! I know though that Sister Lilly lived her whole life for the time she would meet Jesus. As sad as we all will be at her loss..she is at rest now. I am praying for all of you.

    It was honour to meet this beautiful person. I didn’t get to spend enough time with sister Lilly but in the time I did have at church I felt her love throughout the building. I heard her voice sing out to God and her gentle kindness in her words. She made me feel loved immediately. This earth was truly blessed to have her. I pray for strength for all her family and friends in Jesus name.
