"Titi Lill .... I love you so much and you are going to be missed. I am so grateful for what you have taught me in life . You helped to turn me into the woman I am today . You helped me through so much as a young adult and it has stuck with me my entire life ... I would always look so forward to the times I was able to see you and I was at a gathering I knew you where going to be at . You were a true blessing to me , I will forever be great full for you and hold you in my heart . I love you sooooo much and give my mom a hug for me I know she is great full as well for all you did for me as well .. you were very good at talking sense into me and building my strength. I will forever keep you close to my heart ?? "
"Dear Lil... I don't remember a point in my life where I didn't know you. By the time I was born, your family had already been connected with my family, and you were all like my extended aunts and Uncle. In fact, that's how I explained you to Gianna when she and Apryl became friends. Sometimes there are people in your life who are constant. And while I didn't see you every day, I knew I would see you at a school event, a family event, Frog's Corner Picnic, or just at the Ridgemont Wegman's. It's sad to think that the last time I saw you was actually the last time. On behalf of my family and me... we will love and miss you always. And to your family, I pray that they find peace and comfort in the memories, but also in the eyes of your children and grandchildren who all bear resemblance to you and your spirit. May you rest in peace."
