Lily was a very special friend. She was one of my favorite residents when I worked at the Manor. We remained friends even after I left. She was always so happy when I would come to visit her and bring an animal. She loved my Great Dane, Sunshine and my Min Pin, Whoopie Pie. She was very surprised and happy when I brought the sheep in to see her last year. I enjoyed spending time with her and bringing her treats. We had a blast at her 100th birthday party. I will miss seeing her and her smile. My deepest condolences and prayers to you all. She was a very special lady.
