I am so sorry for the Tillman family’s loss. I have fond memories of my youth of the times send with the Tillman family. Mrs Tillman was the person that first introduced me to fabulous food called “grits “. My phone number is 321-698-8618. I so valued and cherished that friendship. May the Lord’s peace and grace be with all of you in this time of sorrow.
