    Walter and Family,
    I was saddened to hear of Lillians passing. She was a wonderful lady. She always had a beautiful smile. We had wonderful visits when you folks would come to have your car looked at. I’m so lucky to have these memories. Hopefully, thoughts and prayers of friends and your memories will get you though the days ahead.

    Dear Uncle Walter, all my cousins & their families,

    So sorry for your loss, but know that she is at peace now. I was very grateful to be able to visit the last 2 summers. My dad, her brother Jean, were very close to each other & we enjoyed hearing the stories about playing in their Swing Band. Getting together for the Wilmington cookouts with all the extended Lawler/Michaud is a cherished memory. Aunt Lillian was a wonderful sister-in-law to my mom, Jeanie, a fun aunt, and a loving wife and mother.

    Take care,
    Kathy & Bob
