"Dear Messer family, my deepest condolences in the loss of your special Lillian. She was a sweet lady and a fun kid growing up, except when she hit me by mistake up side the head with a 2X4! I grew up with the whole Messer bunch and we had a wonderful childhood. I know that Lillian will truly missed by all who loved her but she is now with Cal and singing with her Lord."
