Mrs. Joan and my mother Virginia were best of friends. She even came with Patti and her girls to my wedding in SC 25 years ago. I could always hear mother talking with her on the phone because they made each other laugh and sharing their 70 year friendship was full of love. Rest on Mrs. Joan, tell Roy Ray and my Dad and brother we miss them.

To my cousins, especially Brenda and Ricky who were closest to my age.
I am Cheryl Lilly, daughter of Art (Uncle Buck) and Pauline Larch. Your
grandmother Bid was my father's sister. I recall seeing you and
playing together at Bid and Bob's house and at your house.
My mother and your mother kept in touch all those years,
and she would often speak of you and pass on news over the years.
I recall your mother's smile and friendliness when we visited.
I know you have many good and happy memories to share.
Our sympathy and thoughts are with you all now.
Love Cheryl and Steve Lilly
