Lilly, you are gone to eternal life but memories live on, I didn't meet Lilly personally or see the film but I am one of those advocates for women and a fighter for social justice and violence against women.

I have two daughters, one is studying at the University of Goroka and another doing Grade 11. I don't think too much of my sons but my daughters are always on my mind and in the same way I find it hard to comprehend Lilly's death.

What a terrible loss for all of PNG and especially her family.

Since I lived in PNG for 10 years I am always interested in "all things PNG" in the news. Thus, seeing a woman not only being able to excel in her career but also have such hopes for the future success saddens all who love PNG.

As her family copes with her loss there are questions, like why did did this have to happen to Lilly? In short here are two beautiful scriptures that start to answer these questions. Revelation 21:3,4 "God...will wipe all tears from their eyes, and there will be no more death, suffering, crying, or pain."

And please be assured that God is not the cause of her death or any of the problems we face. James 1:13 says "When under trail let no one say: "I am being tried by God." For with evil things God cannot be tried nor does he himself try (or cause trials, problems) anyone."

Thank you Theresa for remembering Lilly. Beautifully written.

Quite often we seem to lose touch and contact with friends, wantoks and colleagues. But with Lilly she always made time to let you know she was always thinking of you.

Aliko & Ambai has hit the nation (PNG) and we find ourselves reminded of our contemporary reality. I am glad to have been part of the CSCM team along with Aliko & Ambai cast and crew, who had the honor of being a friend, colleague and sister to the beautiful soul Lilly Samuel.

Rest in Eternal Peace Lilly.

I watched Aliko and Ambai during its Port Moresby launch and broke down in tears when a scene with Lilly came on.

I watched that film for the first time after leaving CSCM, a centre close to my heart for the labour of love that went into creating it.

Lilly also brought to the CSCM a labour of love with a Lilly flair - an ever ready hand and a warm smile no matter the day.

Aliko and Ambai was a project to the donors, but it was a life-time for those who put the project together on the ground, Lilly's included.

A true PNG film dedicated to a true PNG woman. People will watch for the elements of watching any film, I will watch for the deeper connection to a wonderful spirit that was Lilly.

Ambai Special through and through.

Rest in eternal peace.

I met Lilly at Massy Village when I was living there. She was such a wonderful person and very easy to talk to. We met again at Pacific Gardens where Aliko & Ambai was shooting one of its scenes.
So sorry to hear about her loss and a beautiful tribute for a beautiful soul.
