  1. We all miss her greatly, 104 years of joy. Many great memories especially while getting to spend much time with her and Uncle Rudy during my time in Trinidad. Sorry that we can’t be there, but will be thinking of you during these difficult times.

  2. Sending our thoughts and prayers to the family of Lillian Icabone. She was a very dear friend and neighbor, She spent may hours visiting on the porch of my Mothers house (Marian DeBono) bringing many vegetables from her garden. We have very fond memories of her.

  3. Aunt Lil was among the best; always ready to give you a good meal and to share memories and a great conversation. We love you and share the joy of your peaceful resting.
