So sorry to hear of Aunt Lila's passing although she is in a much better place! Praying that God will be with all of you during this difficult time and give you peace that passes all understanding. Will always remember Aunt Lila's & Uncle Rayburn's hospitality when we would stop to see them on our way from Tampa to Pennsylvania. Always loved those visits! Such sweet loving people! God Bless you all.

Grandma Hollister was a great woman. I loved to sit and talk with her about everything and nothing. She brought happiness to our family over the years. She will be greatly missed but NEVER Forgotten. I know that she will be one of the ones waiting at heaven's gate for me when I go home <3

Hi Amy,
Sorry for your loss. I remember my grandmother always talking about her sister and all of her great memories as kids. I remember her to be a very kind sweet soul that was always nice to me the couple of times I saw her on her trips up to the farm from Florida. Peace be with you!

Your cousin Will

I have fond memories of Mr and Mrs Hollister coming to Pennsylvania to visit Ruth, Ray and Amy. There was always a picnic with the whole Smith, Hollister and Fueglein families. It is my pleasure to have known them and I am sorry for your family's loss.
