& # 39; Lily didn't get that from me, it was just Lily. She wanted everyone to be happy. & # 39;
Keeping tears in check, thanked everyone in the community who had provided support over the past few weeks and begged them to live every day like his dear Lily.
& # 39; Please be kind, always. Ask a lot of questions about anything and everything you want. Be a little more adventurous than you have been in life before, but above all, always have fun with it. & # 39;
After the service, Lily was taken in a procession to the Roma cemetery, where she was placed in a purple coffin that was donated anonymously to the family.
