A little personal interjection about "Aunt Tillie" . Husband Clifford passed away 09 Sep 68 and the two had no children. Tillie made up for no children by seeing nieces and nephews got to visit Six Flags in the summer, taken on weekend fishing trips, trips to ice cream palor for a cone, etc. She lived alone, working out at gym three times a week, bowling in a league weekly, mowing her large yard and jogging until age of about 92 or 93! She passed 7 days before her 99th birthday.
