Lila was an inspiration to me because of how she faced her struggles. Many would have complained and dispaired at being incapacitated and dependent on others. Lila lived life as fully as possible: adding to our lives by being family historian, creating her art, and by focusing on what was good and positive. I'm so thankful she was in our family. My sympathies go out to the many who will miss her: Especially Denise and Galen.

I met Lila years ago when I was a kid. My mom worked at Grandview and I used to go to work with my mom help out pass ice and I would go in Lilas room all the time and hang out with her. I have spent a lot of time with her when I was younger. She painted me a picture of tweety bird. She loved to paint! I remember it all! I tried to go see her a couple years ago but she wasn't there at that time. I wish I could have seen her. She will be truly missed! Gone but never forgotten! Love you always!

Lila was my cousin by marriage. She was a must-see person at our Richards Family Reunions. She did extensive genealogy research for the Richards Family and prepared a family genealogy book. The Richards Genealogy Book not only contains the lineage but also first-hand and passed down stories from some of the older generations. She was a gift in herself. We are so thankful for her contribution to our family. She was one to beat in Euchre and Scrabble, and most always had a little joke to tell or something to give you a chuckle. My condolences to Galen and Denise, peace be with you.
