What a beautiful, honoring Memorial Service this morning for a beautiful, wonderful friend.
We will miss seeing Tillie out on the porch during the summer. She was such a joyful, delightful woman to spend time and conversation with. We were certainly blessed to know her and her family. Love and gentle care to you Marlene and Kari.
With Love, Wanda and Pete
