Moms are special people, especially one like Aunt Lily. I admired her in so many ways. A very loving, warm and caring lady. I am sorry for the loss of such a beautiful lady inside and out. My thoughts and prayers are with the Gonzales family at this time. Aunt Lily will be missed. May she rest in eternal peace.
