I was so sorry to hear of Tillie's passing. She was a very special lady in my life. I spent so much time at her house while growing up that she was like a second mother to me. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of her family.

Nana, We will miss you dearly. You were one of the most decent women we ever met. We thank you for being so kind to all of us. We love you, and you will forever be in our hearts. You were always there to help no matter what. We know that God does things for a reason, and we shouldn't question why, and so your time came for him to take you home. Our home is not here on earth, it is in Heaven, so rest in peace, and until the time comes when Jesus Christ comes for His Bride, we will see you again in that big reunion in the sky with Our Heavenly Father God, and our brother Jesus Christ. We pray for comfort, peace, and strength for the rest of the family. May God bless each and everyone of you, and know that Nana will no longer suffer, she is finally resting, and she is smiling at everyone. God bless you all. William, Ruth, Jeffrey, and the rest of the Gonzalez Family
