Condolences left for Lillian C. Walker-Ewing:

    We are so sorry to hear of Lillians passing. I only saw Lillian at the family reunion and loved every minute of the time we spent together. I talked a few times on the phone also. Lillian was my mothers middle name and the name of our youngest great grand daughter. Lillian will be greatly missed by us and all who knew her. She made this world a better place.
