It is with a sad and
broken heart I will
try to write
the obituary of
my husband, Carles Tiller.
He was born in
Buchanan County, Virginia on February
15, 1946 and
departed this life on September 8,
2004 at Grundy
Hospital, making his stay on earth 58 years and 7
months. He was born to the
late Evan and
Bessie Tiller of Council, Virginia. He is survived by
Tiller, Donald Tiller and John Tiller; two sisters,
Betty Sue Harris
and Nora Ellen Goad; two children, Carles Kendall
Tiller and Marcie
Faye Tiller; grandchildren; and his grieving wife,
Tiller. His sister, Ruby Tiller, and brother, Arthur Tiller,
along with his
parents preceded him in death. Carles attended church
as often as he
could but became very feeble when he became blind so
after that we
would have called meetings at home. He loved the blessings
he got. He
enjoyed having company, all he would talk about
was Jesus after
the meetings. Our home is not a home anymore since
he left. So I’m
not going to say good bye, just, sleep on Dad till we
Your Loving Wife, Barbara Tiller.
I go now?
Don’t you think the time is right?
May I say good-bye to pain filled
And endless nights?
I’ve lived my life and done my
An example tried to be
So can I take that step beyond
And set my spirit free?
I didn’t want to go at first
I fought with all my might!
But something seems to draw me now
To a warm and loving light.
I want to go!
I really do!
It’s difficult to stay.
But I will try as best I can
To live just one more day...
To give you time to care for me
And share your love and fears.
I know you’re sad and are afraid
Because I see your tears.
I’ll not be far, I’ll promise that,
And hope you’ll always know
That my spirit will be close to you
Wherever you may go,
Thank you so for loving me
You know I loved you too,
That’s why it’s hard to say
And end this life with you.
So hold me now, just one more time,
And let me hear you say,
Because you care so much for me,
You’ll let me go today.
