It is with a heavy heart that we say goodbye to our beloved Lily who died July 18, 2012, of heart failure. She gave us love and joy for seven years and we miss her deeply. In passing, she left us this thought from her mentor, Ben Franklin. “Dost thou love life? Then do not squander time, for that is the stuff life is made of.” This newsletter is dedicated to you, Our Lily.
