    Hello Hal & family:
    We were so sorry to hear of Tillie’s passing. We didn’t see too much of you and your family, but I do remember Tillie and Hal at one of our Zohner family reunions. Jules remembers golfing with the two of you and having a great time. I would have liked to know Tillie better, but travel distance has always been a factor. Please accept our condolences. We watched the service on Live Stream. It was a lovely service and I’m sure Tillie was proud of her family.

  • Karen and Bill Jackson says:

    It was with deep sadness we learned of the passing of Tillie. Tillie was a treasure to us. She felt more like a big sister to me, than a cousin. Her warmth, kindness and sense of humor, will be with us always.

    To all the Family we send our prayers and thoughts. May your treasured memoirs give you peace.
