A Note from Betty
Lillie is camera-shy and told me from the very beginning that she was going to hide behind me. I didn't notice until the book launch was over when I looked back at the pictures that we didn't have ANY of her from this kick-off event. The book launch was held in conjunction with a women's retreat. Lillie was even a speaker for one of the retreat sessions. I terribly regret that I didn't capture this occasion for her in photographs. In my excitement and obsession to ensure the book launch was a success, I forgot the most important reason why I was there, and that was to tell her story to the best of my God-given ability and to show her how much her story was going to inspire others. I asked her to take these pictures the day afterwards just so I would have something to reflect on, something to show that her 31 year silence was finally being told.
