I loved to buy and sell antiques with Tille and her
husband whom I knew for over 20 years, may you be very happy with your husband now
There are no words that can tell you how grateful we
were to Tillie for helping us care for my father. She was so good to him and to us. What a privilege to have known
her and to know that she rests in peace with Jesus Christ.

I will remember Tilly as a kind gentle lady. I
will miss seeing that beautiful smile.
Tillie befriended me at the time of my mother Hazel
Adams death. My father, Kenneth and I, were moving here to Mechanicsburg. Tillie helped me pack all my mother's antique
china dishes. Tillie was a lovely lady, and she always had beautiful antiques to show at the various shows in our area.
