What a woman! Your fearlessness makes the world a better place. Thank you, Lilly!
August 01, 2013
Though I did not know Mrs. Sutson, I am so proud to hear of her work for our people. I find it so frightening that so many of the good are going on. Though rightfully, to take their rest, I fear for my children, my grandchildren, and all that are oblivious to our cause. I will remember Mrs. Sutson in my prayers, I thank God for her, and I just know that God's arms were wide open to receive her.
Treasure the memories you have of her, those memories will make you cry, they will make you laugh, and for certain they will bring you peace. From what I have read, your family member was quite a lady; THAT lady will always be with you, to watch over and protect you.
Be Blessed family of Lillian Bonner Sutson, you have much to be proud of.
August 01, 2013
What a woman!! Thank you for your courage. Because of that courage we now can walk into the voting booth and have our say. Rest well with your Father in heaven now. My prayers and condolences to your family. Be Blessed

To the Sutson Family:
May the Lord continue to bless each of you. I thank God for the courage of your mother/grandmother as well as, the courage of your great grandmother. They were women born before their time. We just don't have hero's like that anymore.
August 01, 2013
My hope is that the family will come together during this time of sorrow to support one another and share the wonderful memories that made her so great. God provides comfort to grieving ones in this way. So share memories and allow God to comfort you in your time of grief.

You were a true hero, a role model that inspired and helped to begin change. At the age of 12 living in rural GA i knew things had to change. A group of youth from our church drove black men and women to the court house and helped them register to vote. We were determined to get Julian Bond elected to state office. On election day we drove these newly registered voters to the poll. Mr Bond won but he was not allowed to take his seat. We were frustrated and many us us gave up the fight but you did not you kept going every day like the ant movin a mountain and you inspired so many who joined and as a result change has come about there is still more to do but with real hero's like you and Julian Bond in the world to inspire us we can make a change and keep moving foward. Thank you for your your dedication and hardwork. Blessing
August 01, 2013
