January 21, 2013
John - I just heard on NBC when you were talking with Brian Williams that Lillian had passed away. You may remember me as the guy who worked with her in the late 60s and early 70s at Atlanta University to create the Black Studies Collection for Bell & Howell, with a team microfilming books and other materials in her library. I also visited you in your he in DC when you were running Vista and your son was a baby. I have lots of very fond memories of Lillian when we ate in some restaurants around Atlanta or she dropped me off at the airport, and she pretended we were married, to get a rise out of anybody within earshot!

She was a great lady! My deepest condolences!
January 21, 2013

Rep. Lewis,

I found out today watching you on national television (President Obama's inaugural affairs), that your wife had died the end of 2012. I had to look and see when, as I lost my husband December 30, 2012, at 3:49 pm....I see that your lovely wife passed away just about 24 hours later. My thoughts and prayers are with you, I have admired you for a long time. Your wife was a lovely woman!

My condolences,

DEAR CONGRESSMAN LEWIS. WHILE YOU WERE ATTENDING THE FUNERA FOR LILLIAN. I AND SOME OTHER PEOPLE IN DC HELD A VIGIL AT THE WHITE HOUSE IN HER HONOR. SHE PROVIDED ME WITH A JOB EVERY SUMMER WHILE IN COLLEGE. IT WAS A PRIVILEGE TO PRAY WITH HER WHILE SHE BATTLED HER ILLNESS. I WAS HONORED TO GIVE A PRIVATE PIANO CONCERT FOR HER AT YOUR LOVELY HOME. SHE WAS A TRUE INSPIRATION FOR ME. I HOPE TO SPEAK WITH YOU SOON ABOUT A PROPER WAY TO REMEMBER HER LOVING LEGACY. I CANNOT WAIT TO PLAY SOME OF HER FAVORITE TUNES IN HEAVEN. YOU WERE BLESSED TO HAVE A HEAVENLY ANGEL AS A WIFE. WE WILL ALL UNITE IN HEAVEN SOON BECAUSE THIS WORLD IS ON A CATACLYSMIC COURSE. THE LORD IS COMING SOON AND WE SHOULD ALL LIVE UPRIGHTLY AS DID MY DEAR FRIEND LILLIAN. HOLD ON TO GOD'S UNCHANGING HAND.

You and Lillian met during the movement tied that "together knot" and stood by each other for the total life journey. We are saddened by the lost of your wife and your son's lost of his mother. We pray for the "transcended soul of Lillian" that she may find joy in this new place beyond and that you may know her peace.
Our mutual friend "Marion Fuson (Mrs Nelson Fuson at Fisk)" now lives at Kendall Pennsylvania and has been trying to reach you via mail and
did visit your office in Atlanta. She too sends also her greetings and will attempt to write to you again. I have given her your address.
I remain in New York. Al Lingo told me of Lillian's demise. I also spoke to William Harbour and Bernard Lafeyette about Lillian.
I am certain that you will remember all the special things in your marriage of such long years. We, from the movement, love you for great human being you are and the life of service you both have given to others. We stand with you supporting you, meditating on you, praying for you in this time of sorrow.

Her talents now intended for God to use
Intermittently she sleeps
And when she awakes it's God she'll meet

Another Angel He's called back home
Leaving you wonderful memories so you're never be alone
When at times you might feel uneasy
Find solace in knowing that she is with Jesus

May your sorrow hidge on the words of God
And peace rest within your heart
May your tears be those of joy
Because heaven is now her home and she is in complete comfort

Oh my, how I will miss Lillian. When we would talk it would be an hour or more discussion, talking politics, world events and simple happenings in Los Angeles. She was always diligent in calling to see if I was going to Congressional Black Caucus every year so she could arrange for tickets for the Atlanta party. She was someone I always looked forward to speaking to. I was lucky to have visited her a few years ago with Gwen Moore to her and John's beautiful home. I have fond memories that I will reflect on in these coming days.

John; My thoughts are with you during these tough times. But with family and friends supporting you, you too can reflect upon the good times with Lillian. With sympathy and much love, Joy Atkinson

I met Lillian here in Atlanta in the 70's through a mutual acquaintance in Los Angeles who suggested I call her. We became friends who spent many hours laughing and talking. I was very sorry to hear of her illness, but through her discomfort, she remained a strong person, and I was devastated to hear of her passing. To John and her other family members, I offer my deepest sympathies. She was a wonderful wife, mother, sister, aunt, and friend who will be missed by all.

God bless,

You were one in body, mind and spirit; as you continue to live, so shall Ms. Lillian. An old hymn states " A true beliver never dies, but lives eternally". She loved you completely and dearly; God lovees you fully and unconditionally, He understands your sorrow,grief and pain, because He's feeling it just as you; please know, you and your son are not alone.

January 02, 2013
Dear Rep. Lewis and John Miles,

Lillian was a treasure of your heart and to lose her must be like losing a piece of yourself. But the love that Lillian brought you...did not leave, for the essence of her soul lingers. It cannot escape your heart, for you were united for 44 years.

Cling to your memories of Lillian (wife/mother) and let them find their way to heal you. The love and laughter, the joy in the togetherness you shared...will make you strong. I thank God for your time together. You were blessed to have such a precious gift of love in your life.

Continue to embrace the loving memories and trust in your faith in the Most High God to guide you through. Know that though life moves on...the beauty of love stays behind to surround and embrace you. Lillian has left you that...to hold on to in your heart forever.

With deepest sympathy,
Pastor Carleathea Benson

It is with great sympathy and tremendous loss that I extend my deepest prayers to both John and Lillian. It was a priviledge to lead and manage John's 1986 innaugural campaign for Congress getting to know Lillian so well and an honor for her to have sponsored my son's Eagle Scout reception. I will remember her fondly when opening John's book and seeing us walk down Peachtree Street minutes after learning of our victory. Farewell Lillian, we love you.

WHEN JOHN LEWIS AND LILLIAN WERE ATTENDING THEIR FIRST CIVIL RIGHTS MEETINGS, THEY DID NOT KNOW EACH OTHER AS BOTH WERE TEENAGERS BUT AS JOHN'S WIFE AND PARTNER, LILLIAN, LIKE CORETTA SCOTT KING, JUANITA ABERNATHY, JEAN CHILDS YOUNG, OCTAVIA VIVIAN, AND OTHER LIFE PARTNERS OF OUR GREAT LEADERS WHO WERE "BRINGING US ALONG" TO A MORE JUST NATION AND TOWARD A BELOVED COMMUNITY, ... NOW THESE CIVIL RIGHTS LADIES AND HEROES AND SO MANY MORE OF THE WOMEN UNRECOGNIZED FOR THEIR SACRIFICES, WELCOME THEIR FRIEND LILLIAN TO HER WELL DESERVED REST AND GLORY.

What a sweet woman Lillian was. She had been sick for so very long but was a strong, courageous trooper through it all.

I always enjoyed our conversations. In her later years, she didn't get out much, but she held great conversations and didn't hold back with her thoughts about things. She could make you laugh.

Lillian basically 'launched' my national public speaking events when in the late '80s/early '90s she asked [i.e. made :-)] me speak to the Congressional Black Caucus Women & Spouses in DC, and it was a great experience, and to her I am grateful.

To the family, my prayers for your strength during this time of loss, but also remember and cherish the wonderful times and Lillian's strong support of her husband, son and social causes. Truly an era is passing.

Take your rest, Lillian; job well done.
January 01, 2013
