Dear Carl and Family,

So sorry to hear of your loss of such a precious Mother! Even though she will be missed by all who knew her, especially you, we have the promise of our Lord Jesus that we will meet again! Perhaps sooner than we think! May God’s presence linger very near and carry you through this most difficult time!

Love, Amy and John Williams

Dear Martha and Carl, To you all and your family may I express our condolences on the passing of your Mom. I know Wesley will forever miss her wonderful cakes. How often he talked of how yummy they were. I am sure that Grandma Hollinger is at peace and looking down to keep you all safe and sound. May the love you shared be the strength that gets you through . Your memories and sharing the fun times will forever be a gift she left you so remember her always. Carry her in your hearts.

Love Pam and Bob Flanagan

for many years and always looked

forward to seeing them. Lil would

treat us to delcious cakes and mouth

watering deserts. She was a beautiful

lady as well as good bowler. My sympathy to Carl and the family.

I loved going bowling with grandma when I was a kid. Grandma would take me shopping and spoil me with the nicest clothes. She always wanted me to look good. Grandma loved her grandchildren so much. I will miss celebrating our birthdays together. She will forever be missed!

The memories I share of Lillian are a treasure to hold.I shared many holidays,Birthdays,Anniversaries,and dinners over the many years ,that her & Carl were extended members of my family.She was a person of many colors.You could always count on her for sharing jokes,the latest stories,and making delightful desserts and dishes for many occasions.She would show us her many finds, of the latest jewelry or new purses that she found.She enjoyed trips with friends on fun tours to various places of interest.I enjoyed their last vacation to Pigeon Forge with her & Carl.Our lives were blessed for knowing her,and she will be forever missed.I am glad that I had the honor of being in Va.,when she was at the end of her life journey.I spent many hours in the assisted living home with Carl & Martha,as we shared her last moments.God prepared her a place in Heaven,and her journey is now complete.She will be missed ,as she was loved by many.Our lives are better because of knowing her.I was blessed to have known her ;as was my beloved deceased husband.I know that she had a busy time as she entered Heaven’s gate.I can see her greeting all of her loved ones, and sharing stories.She is no longer suffering ;and is in a beautiful heavenly home.She no longer has to shop for those jewels.God has placed many in her crown, that is made of the finest jewels.She will be greatly missed by her family & lovely friends left behind.I look forward to the day we can all be reunited,with her & all of our loved ones.My sympathy is extended to all of her family.May God console you and wrap you in his loving arms.I know how hard this is, on all that shared in her life.My love and prayers are with you all.

Love,
