I did not have the privilege of knowing Lily. All that I knew about her was what George told me during our conversations. What I did take away from our conversations that they were very much in love and that they were childhood sweethearts.
They have a wonderful family of very respectful and God loving children.
I wish George and the children the strength and endurance to continue their lives with God’s help, knowing that Lily is looking down on them. She will always be in their hearts.
May her soul, and all the souls of the faithful departed rest in peace. Amen.

My heart is broken for you all. I pray God gives you all peace at this difficult time. I know how much she meant to everyone. She has always been in my heart and will always be a part of my life and memories. She was a wonderful wife, mother and God mother. May God hold her tight. He knows I wish I could be there.

I am really grateful to God who allowed me to meet such a wonderful, sweet and good-hearted woman called LILY . We met at the Gianna Center where she helped me a lot with her wisdom
and advice. God put her as an angel in my life, so I am sure she is in heaven next to our Creator. My deepest condolences to all your family now have an angel who is watching you from heaven.

Estoy muy agradecida con Dios que me permitió conocer a una mujer tan maravillosa, dulce y de buen corazón llamada LILY. Nos conocimos en el Centro Gianna donde ella me ayudó mucho con su sabiduría. y asesoramiento. Dios la puso como un ángel en mi vida, así que estoy seguro de que ella está en el cielo junto a nuestro Creador. Mis más profundas condolencias a toda su familia ahora tienen un ángel que los está observando desde el cielo.
