    Doyle and all of Lillian’s family, I am so sorry for your loss. I am a cousin of Lillian’s. My grandmother and her grandfathe were (Ewing) brother and sister. I lived about half way between Greenvale and Milton until Mothher and Dad moved to Nashville when I was 9 years old. I live in Dalton, GA now, am about 95% blind, no longer drive and had no way to get to Lebanon either yesterday or today. My deepest sympathy, and I pray God’s blessings on all of you. Rest in peace, dear Lillian.
