I was very sad to hear of Lillian's passing. She has been associated with our family, through music, since 1950. Jack and Lillian played in the adult band conducted by my father, D'Arcy, driving into Regina once a week for rehearsals. She maintained contact with our family after my parents passed away, and I have kept Lillian's Christmas letters...always admiring her command of the English language. She had such spunk and lived life to the fullest...a lesson for us all. She gave so much to the musical community, and the last time I spoke to her was at the Saskatchewan Music Conference in 2010, when she was presented with an award which was well deserved. She was truly an incredible lady who inspired so many.
