    With deepest sympathy on the loss of a wonderful woman. Aunt Lil always generously welcomed us when Lee and I visited Boston, and she always made me blueberry cupcakes which she knew I loved. She also added a touch of humor and reality to Lee’s stories about his antics at “the cottage.” So sorry we can’t travel and say a proper goodbye.

    I was so sorry to hear of Aunt Lilly’s passing. I enjoyed visiting her with my sister Maureen and my Mom and at her 100 birthday celebration. I remember as a little girl Aunt Lilly calling my Mom and they would spend hours on the phone just talking about anything and everything. I am so sorry for your loss.
