    Dear Tillman Family,

    Our hearts go out to you at this very sad time. We pray that you find peace in all the wonderful memories you share. Milt was such a sweet man who always put a smile on my face when he stopped in to visit or drop something off to his son Matt for one of his grandchildren. He will be greatly missed by all.
