Dearest Minnie, Liza & Peter,
On behalf of my mom, Barbaara Collins, and the entire 'Collins Clan',I send all of you our deepest love and heartfelt symphathy at the passing of your mom. My mom loved Lilly like a sister and would often tell us of the fun they both had traveling around the country opening up new 'Lilly Shop's' and the great people they would meet along the way.
Many of whom became life-long friends all sharing a love for Lilly and of course, the "Lilly!" She was such a fun, vibrant, carefree, beautiful and gracious woman who loved her family and children intensely,her numerous friends and simply living life. She loved to cook, have parties and celebrate something every day!
She really loved traveling across Europe with Enrique and hosting numerous weekend bbq's around the pool where she and Enrique would tell us all of their travels and the fun they had and the funny things that happened filling us up with laughter and the sudden urge to go where they had just been!
For all of us who where lucky enough to know her she had a way of making each of us each feel special,like we were all family and offered a standing invatation every weekend to come to her home for more fun, laughter,a cigar & a game of 'Gin' or two for the men and some backgammon, sun bathing, gossip and frozen Daq's for the gals!
The love my mom had for Lilly was ever-lasting and so,is mine. Please know that we are all thinking of you and are sending our love and comfort to you during this time. Lilly would not have wanted anyone to sit around and cry for her. She would instead throw a party in celebration of her life and the fun she had living it to the fullest! So,"Cheer's Lilly! You're the greatest of them all!"
