I loved talking with her.
My favorite memory - we came into nursing home to pick up my Dad for Christmas and I went to look for her and then there she was in the hall. She looked so beautiful, makeup perfect, hair perfect. She was a glowing angel.
Can’t believe I won’t get to talk with her more. 😢 Loved her so much❣️

How sad that I have lost you my dear Aunt Tillie...who will I go to for my “information” now??? With a mind as sharp as a tack and a heart of gold, you knew everyone AND their history!!! Losing you was right up there with me losing my mama, Frieda. I so enjoyed all of our visits. You always brought in laughter. You were my idol...I want to be like you when I “grow up”. May God bless you as you enter your heavenly home with Him ...and those “sisters”!❤️
