Lillian and family my grandmother Monica s w i e t n i c k i, was your mother\'s sister. When I was a child about 8 years old, and had just lost my dad to death, we visited you and Smitty. And he as a Young Man and newly married to you Lillian, he made a big fuss over me, and I just adored him ! And now as an adult, I just thank God for him. He helped me adjust and accept the loss of the most important man in my life. Thank you Lillian for marrying that beautiful man into our family. And I remember you as a beautiful young bride. Very loving. Thank you Lord for Lillian and Smitty. God bless you Lillian and all your family. I love you, and remember Jesus loves you most. Dorothy d e m b r a l - c h i e f f a l l o
