Oh what a special lady, Tilly came into our life's in 1961, from the aftermath of Hurricane Carla, at that time Ernest and Tilly came out to Dad and Moms to work and get our damaged home back in order so the four of us girls could come home and in return Earnest and Dad built their home in Clute, from the ground up, what a beautiful relationship was also built. They both will always hold a special place in our hearts. Love the "Akers" girls, Connie Ann, Linda Sue, Dianna Lynn and our precious (deceased in1999) Wanda Gail.
