Bob, Russ, Jason & family, I am very sorry to hear of Tish’s passing. When she came to work at Belmont Community hospital we became immediate friends. She was always laughing and spoke often of the love she had for each of you. We also had many conversations about our mutual faith in God and I truly believe her Christian faith has taken her to heaven. God Bless.

Bobby and Family,

You all have been in our prayers these last few months, and now our deepest sympathies. Tish was such a wonderful family oriented woman who had such a giving and kind heart to all. We all know how she loved her children and grandchildren…. the light of her life. I will treasure our time when you all visited us with Aunt Mary for the weekend, and when you came in for Anthony and Kristy’s wedding. I got to know her so much better,how caring and loving she was to Aunt Mary, and how excited that she found love again in you.

We will miss her very much.

God has made her new again…she is at peace. We loved her but God loved her more.

We love you cousin

Dear Bob and Family, so sorry I couldn’t be at the service. I was at

my sons home in Virginia. I am so sorry for you. I don’t know if I could have come anyway. I was really torn. One minute I wanted to and then again I just wanted to remember her the way she was. God bless you all. You will be in my prayers.
