    I am shock to know that Lillian was one of us, a Garifuna woman. My condolence goes out to her children family and friends, God be with her.
    As a Atlanta Garifuna, I will do my outmost best to attend her service. I have never met her, but she was a beautiful woman.

    My deepest condolences to the Martinez family. I grew up with Lilian and her brothers in Castle Hill Ave. It seems hard to believe that something so tragic can happen to such an exceptional family. My prayers go out the Martinez Family.
    Sincerly, Jose Caballero
