Dear Elaine. I was shocked and saddened to hear about your Mom. Please accept my deepest sympathy to you and your family. Take Care.

My concolences on the passing of your precious mother, grandmother Tillie. She was a part of our family’s life forever including a period of time where I had the opportunity to work with her for several years. We were a team. I know that she was a terrific mother, wife and friend and her passing leaves me with a heavy heart. I feel lucky to have many happy memories to take out and look back on because she was a part of my life. Thoughts, prayers and hugs to all the family.

From: Colette Mandin
Relation: Friend

I am saddened by the loss of this lovely lady whom I remember since I was little. Marc and I jokingly called Tillie “Dad’s other wife” because she knew where everything was in the dental clinic and most often had to let Dad (Louis Mandin) know where they were. She assisted the dental practice with professionalism and grace.

The last time I saw Tillie was at Dad’s funeral last year (June 2013)–I was deeply moved by her reaction to the powerpoint photos of his life–they rekindled fond memories for her too as she was so much a part of it all.

My thoughts and condolences go out to the family at this sad time. May warm, happy memories replace the sadness over time. She will always be a part of you.

Elaine and Family
Please accept my deepest sympathy in the loss of your dear mother, grandmother, great-grandmother. I only met her once but felt I knew her as well as possible from all our conversations. The loss of a mother is made bearable only by the precious memories we hold dear. My heartfelt condolences go out to you and your family at this difficult time.
