I met Lila several years ago when I became the Manager of the Acton Curves location. She immediately became my favourite early morning member. At the stroke of 8AM, Lila would appear - either Ray dropped her off at the door or you'd see her walking across the parking lot. She was a wonderful and vibrant lady who always had an entertaining story (or two!) to tell us every day. She talked about her family, her childhood and her life in Acton. She had such an engaging way to tell a story, you felt you were part of it. I know she'll be sadly missed by her family, friends and all who were lucky enough to have known her. My sincere condolences for your loss.
