Delana, Keith and family,
I will never forget Lillie Mae and the times we spent together growing up on the hill….
She is a beautiful lady with a beautiful heart and soul.
Always smiling even in the hardest times.
Lillie Mae grew up with Dad on the Mountain and as kids we all grew up together on the hill ❤️
I remember Mom telling about teaching Lillie Mae how to drive.
Where does the time go?
Love you
