What a precious woman! I did not meet you until you were at Abigail House and truly I wish that I had known you for more years.
You always had a sweet hello for anyone that came to visit. You will always hold a special place in my heart my friend. And May Light Perpetual Shine Upon You!

We are so sorry for your loss. I always looked forward to Tillie's bright smile every morning at The Abigail. I'm going to miss her.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and the family.
