Lillie was born on Good Friday, April 9, 2004. She was a beautiful, playful, charismatic girl with a loving spirit. Life was good until she was diagnosed with Stage IV Neuroblastoma on October 12, 2006 at 2 1/2 years old. Lillie fought the disease for 10 months and was declared NED for only one month before relapsing with tumors in her brain. She died at home on August 28, 2007.
Lillie loved to dress in the color pink from head to toe. She looked up to her big sister, Hannah, and, for a short time, loved hugging on her baby sister Eva. Lillie was an angel on earth, enduring pain most cannot imagine. In her 3 short years, she taught those around her how to laugh uncontrollably and to love unconditionally. She had immeasurable strength and courage and grace. To know and love Lillie was a true blessing.
Lillie also knew she was loved. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=71XT_yM3Kso
