Ilean was truly a ray of sunshine. She brightened the lives of everyone around her. Her grace and dignity in her passing has been an example to all who had the privilege to know her. This wonderful eternal companionship has accepted without complaint the will of the Lord in their lives. She will truly be missed. May the Lord bless her kind sweetheart and other family members.
