While saddened to read of Lila's passing, I'm heartened by the wonderful memories I have of Lila and my mom, Lois Marks, when the Herberts lived in Houston. These 2 women were like long lost soulmates who finally found each other, and shared a special friendship with lots of laughter and tears, that continued beyond the Herberts departure from Houston, until my mom's passing in 1988. I know that Lila and my mom are up in heaven right now, cutting up and laughing up a storm.

I was fortunate to get to know Lila (and Ike) in the late '70's when I moved to Houston, but feel I knew her before then from my mother's many stories, as they were close friends from college. The world lost one of its kindest, most loving and gracious women. My heart goes out to Lila's children and grandchildren. I hope, in time, that their vast repertoire of joyful memories comforts and sustains them.
