To Crystal: (And all the other Family Members) My condolences to you on the Loss of your Gramma……..Lily was a Friend……mostly through the Ft. Gary Legion…….but also at other Legion Dances as well. I am happy that Don & I were able to visit her once at her apartment after she sold her House. Due to covid we didn’t get to see her again after that, and often wondered how she was doing - but with her memory failing her, I didn’t call as she seemed to Not remember people etc. Prior, though, we had many fun times. She lived a long life, which was an enjoyable one, I’m sure, Although, not always an easy one, after loosing her Husband and her Daughter, both of which she spoke of often of how much she missed them…….and spoke often of her 2 Grandchildren with great pride…. May she rest. in peace now. We attended her Memorial service through Zoom and enjoyed the service and the video…..as we didn’t know her that long, and it was nice to see photos of her during many fond years of her life. Our sympathies for your Loss. Ethel & Don McCully - Posted by: Ethel (Friend) on: Sep 04, 2021
