From the Hayes/Hinds family..

Lillian was a good friend to our mother Eleanor Hayes from the very first day mom joined house #12 at Eddy Village Green in July 2017. Her sweet smile and support helped mom feel welcome and made the transition so much better. We all enjoyed Lillians company and our visits with Lillian and her beautiful family will remain in our memories for a lifetime. She joins our mother/grandmother Eleanor in the presence of our lord in heaven. I am sure they are enjoying eachothers company once again.

To Lillians wonderful family, you were a constant support to her. Lillian spoke so much of her grandson who she cherished. May you find peace in this difficult time. We will always be grateful for our family, friends, and the amazing staff that house #12 gave to Lillian and Eleanor. Rest in peace Lillian. God Bless.

From-Judy, Harold, Kayla,Jessica, Deanne, Dawn, Avery and Rylan.

My condolences to Ann and the family. I used to see Lillian when I was visiting another dear friend who was also a resident. Lillian was always upbeat and friendly, even when it seemed things were getting quite a bit tougher. May she rest in peace. ; Frank Coppa; East Greenbush
