We feel honored to have had the opportunity to meet your Mom. She was a lovely person. We know what a wonderful, kind and sincere person she was, as it reflects through her son Ernie, whom we have become friends with. Lil was an inspiration, and maybe didn’t even realize it. Loved her feistiness. Lil May you Rest In Peace. ❤️Patty&Bernie
