Sorry, I accidentally posted before it was finished ... One story I wanted to share was when I visited before I headed to college, Val and I were to pick Mr. and Mrs. Tishler up at the airport. AT the time, Mrs. Tishler had a very curly perm so Val and I greeted her at the airport with our hair in similar tight curls. She was also very generous to me. When Val asked me to be in her wedding, I said I couldn't afford it as I was changing jobs and had no extra funds -- and in those days, we didn't have credit cards! She called me back and said not to worry, she would take care of it. She was one in a million and I will never forget her and that great laugh! My heart aches for her family. I know she will be greatly missed.

I adored Mrs. Tishler. Val and I were inseparable in our early teen years and I probably spent more of my waking hours at the Tishler household than at my own home. She was always very direct, honest, and had a great sense of humor (and style). Even though I was very self-conscious, I found it easy to talk to her. I will never forget the tears and hugs before I moved away. During a visit after college, Val and I were to pc
