Lilly Grace Bowen, 17 years young, survived by her loving parents, Jason and Sarah, her devoted big brother Jason, best friend and cousin Kennedy, half-siblings and mother, and more cousins, aunts, uncles, and her grandparents, Carol and Bert and Joanna and Robert. She was predeceased by her grandfather Thomas Edwards, Jr.
Lilly loved many things. She was an artist and loved to paint abstract pictures for her friends. She loved to sing and had a beautiful voice. She loved animals and will be missed by her cats, Ping-a-Ling and Luna and her rescue puppy, Fiona. In her short years she treasured rats, hamsters, hermit crabs, and Guinea pigs. They all recognized her generous compassion, even the rats.
Our memories of Lilly will live forever. We will think of her when we see oversized sweaters and hoodies that she loved to wear, fuzzy socks that never matched, Christmas lights that hung in her room year round, and the beautiful blue sky that matched her eyes.
We know she is in heaven with her grandpa, her granny, her uncle, and all the other’s who loved her. She has left the pain of this world and is at joyful peace with them. We will mourn the loss of her physical presence in our lives, her smile, her songs, her hugs, but we will look forward to the day when we can touch her face again.
We are waiting to celebrate Lilly’s life on her 18th birthday, December 27, 2020, at which time we will contact family and friends to join us. Never go a day without telling your babies they are loved.
