Wow! What an amazing woman, elegant and gracious to the end.  Her advice for a long life:  “Keep busy, don’t give up easily, drink a lot of water, and don’t forget to go to church.”  

Thanks for sharing, Fred!

The body of work and legacy which will be a testimony of her life and should inspire those who are family and encourage those of us who can live vicariously through her acheivements.

Her quote is well thought out:

“Keep busy, don’t give up easily, drink a lot of water, and don’t forget to go to church.”   

*Don't be slouthful

* Never quit

* Take care of your body, it's the only one you get.

*Be accountable

And you will live long and prosper.

RIP Lillian.
