    Rest in peace Tilley. We love you dearly and we will miss you. You are free from all pain and sickness now. I know we will all be together in heaven one day. <3 You turned your life over to our precious Lord and accepted him as your savior. Heaven gained another angel when you left this earth.

    John 14: 1-6
    [1] Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
    [2] In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
    [3] And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
    [4] And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.
    [5] Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?
    [6] Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
