God Bless Lillian. I had the great pleasure to work with Lillian and her son Rich at BC/BS of CT. Actually CMS in 1980. She was a very classy lady with a true work ethic. I remember when Rich brought to work a fabulous photo of Lillian, on a prom date with Paul Newmann. We were so young and probably wouldn't believe it if we hadn't seen the photo. She looked beautiful with her handsome date while he was a student at Yale Acting School. Great memories. R.I.P.
