So sorry to hear the news. Tish was not just our neighbor, she was more like family. We are glad to have known her over the years. She was always so full of life. She loved you Mike, and I know how much she meant to you. We all will see her again, in time. The McManus family.

Mike and family, Ed and I are so sorry for your loss. Tish was such a loving person and will be missed very much. We would tease each other about missing our mailbox chats since you moved to Florida. She had a sweet smile and a big heart. Most of all she loved her family and was proud to show it with that smile.
She’s smiling on all now and watching.
God bless all of you🙏🧸

Mike, I am so sorry to hear this heartbreaking news. I have a good idea how you feel as I lost Cheri 3 years ago. I will always remember the sparkle in Tish's eyes and her smile, both were captivating. God Bless you Mike and your family. Jim Cooper
