HODGES, LILAINE On December 19, 2012 an angel came down and took Lilaine (Terri) Hodges, 73, to be reunited with son Jerry and daughter Dawn Hodges. She smiled as she walked through heavens gates but had a aching in her heart. As she watched from above; her husband of 55 years Jerry, her children daughter Kelly and sons Robert, Scott and Don crying with heavy hearts. "Please don't cry tears of sadness. Don't you know I am no longer in pain or suffering? Cry tears of happiness; of the memories we created and shared. Born in Washington D.C.; she had a heart of a Southerner. She lived in San Diego County over 50 years. She was a Golf Starter at Camp Pendleton for 15 years and enjoyed fishing, casinos, animals and traveling. She loved spending time with family. "Toodles" she would say as she never liked the word good-bye. It was too final. I will see you soon. Memorial service will be at Eternal Hills, Oceanside, CA. Saturday, December 29, 2012 at 10:00 a.m.
