As you all know I lost my oldest son Wallace Wade Tillery on Dec. 6, 2012 due to a massive heart attack. He had no insurance so the burden fell upon our family. In our time of need so many generous people in my hometown gave what they could from the bottom of their hearts.
During our time of sorrow we received food, money, donations, cards, phone calls, support and love and prayers. Words are no enough. But I want to say thank you to some that I know personally that helped make the burden a little easy on myself and my wife and family. Some of these people I have known for years, Gracie Smith, George and Hilda Duren for their food, support and donations. On Jan. 5 we held a benefit dinner fish fry to raise money to help pay the funeral expenses.
I would like to thank Harold Raffield for donating the fish, Gracie Smith for organizing the dinner, George Boyer, Tony Harrison for cooking, Becky Wood, Diana King, Ewell Harrison for their help. Also, Harry Paul and VFW Post 10069 and VFW Post 8205 in Parker also donated. There are so many good people who do care and give what they can and I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I have always heard the saying “shop at home.” Well, I can see how that pays off. I shop at our local stores and I find that that saying pays off. There are good people in this county that I live in. Again, thanks very much.
From the Tillery family.
