My prayers and deepest condolences on your loss. Lila was a joy and in my adult life I enjoyed her so much. As a child I will always see those ladies playing cards together and having so much fun and now they are reunited, Alice, Irene, Janice, Dorothy, Carolyn, and the ones I’ve forgotten but not them.
Peace of Christ be with you, and the memories of both your parents be their everlasting love to you. Hugs full of my love, Terri
