October 21, 1932 – May 26, 2015
She was only a phone call away. Now, she is not. I am bereft. I am heartbroken. I am inconsolable. I adored her. My world has been shattered. Patricia (Pat) Lillingston leaves behind daughter Elizabeth Crawford (née Lillingston), son-in-law Colin Crawford and grandcat Mimi. She is predeceased by husband Richard (Dick) Lillingston only 13 days prior. Mom was always putting her daughter first, as evidenced by an outing to a local carnival. I needed a balloon very, very badly. Mom, as usual, set out in pursuit of this very, very badly needed balloon. The carnival was abuzz. After acquiring my balloon Mom managed to lose a flip flop in the melee. Then an over-zealous reveler spilt Coca Cola all over mom. I sat pleased as punch with my very, very badly needed balloon. Mom sat hot, sticky and sans one flip flop. Mom, you clung to life as long as you could. Losing Dad was too much for you.
I love you. Dad loves you. Your true love story will continue into the beyond.
Dick & Pat Forever!
