    I am very saddened at the loss of one of the best friends that I ever had. We worked together for many years and never had even a cross word between us.
    she was one of the most compassionate, and capable ladies that I have ever met. Barry, and family, may God give you peace.

    I worked with Lillian at Associated Anesthesia from 1973 until she retired. She was an excellent anesthetist and many people alive today owe their lives to her skills. Her personality and work ethic made it more pleasant to come to work each day. Our thanks and prayers are with the family.
