    SORRY TO LEARN OF LILLIAN’S PASSING. WE WERE NEIGHBORS AND FRIENDS FOR YEARS. LILLIAN TAUGHT ME TO DRIVE A CAR BUT NOT A MOTORCYCLE . AND SHE TRIED TO TEACH ME TO SEW BUT I DIDN’T GET TOO FAR WITH THAT AND ENJOYED EATING SOME OF HER GOOD COOKING. A LOT OF NICE MEMORIES. OUR SYMPATHY TO LINDA, JOHN, SUE AND LAWRENCE AND ALL HER FAMILY.
