We lost our sweet Lillie Sue yesterday afternoon. How fortunate we were to have her in our lives as long as we did. Now we have a very special angel looking over us. And I'm sure those new wings are absolutely brilliant.

Thank you all so very much for all your thoughts and prayers. We felt each and every one.

We will be celebrating her life at my brother Jim's house in Maryland on November 14. It will be a wonderful celebration of a beautiful life.

She was the best. She took care of me for all those school years, now she'll watch over all of us from above. Rose, you're just like her in so many ways; full of love and laughter. I love you. Call me ANYTIME. XXOO ~ Aim

Oh, Rosemary. My heart is aching for you, as I know other hearts around the world are as well. I think we all feel we have come to know her beautiful smile, her great warmth, her humor and joy, and in a bit of a way, it is a loss for all of us who have known her only through you, the marvelous photos, and the stories.

Hugs to you. Many of them. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

I know the loss leave a terrible and empty place within you but your joyful celebration of her life is exactly right. Her smile is the best evidence of a life well-lived.

I will offer prayers for the repose of her soul on my sidebar so she can be remember in this week of her passing.

Warm wishes,
