    Best friends aren’t supposed to leave one another so sudden and you were my best friend. Mary, Jamey, Kim, this leaves a big hole in my heart as I know it does yours. There is consolation in knowing we shared some wonderful years together, from Conestee to Fort Jackson, to Simpsonville, never to far apart, but the greatest consolation is knowing that we shared the same Savior our Lord Jesus Christ and knowing that, I know I’ll see you again soon. I loved you like a brother Till as did all the Fowler family you were one of us. Rest in peace my brother, my comrade, thank you for your service to our country and thank you for always being on my side no matter what. Our love and prayers to the family, heaven was just made a little sweeter. Joan and I stand ready to help if needed, please don’t hesitate to ask.

He was always ready to help his fellow man in anyway he could. I along with the family and all that knew him, will sorely miss him. We as Christians will be looking forward to seeing him,in Glory, some sweet day.

    It is a sad time, in life, when we lose someone we have known, as long as we have known Till. When he was at Exxon, i depended on him to keep my car running! Kirby and I both enjoyed him when we were at Cannon, together. We were in church together, many years. I remember him playing guitar at Lloyd’s! He loved Country Music! We know through faith, we will see him again. Love to all. Thelma & Kirby Ballew.

    Mr Till was one of a kind and we all know for sure he is with our lord and savior. I wish I could have seen you one last time to say how much you were loved and respected. Most of us learned some sort of lesson or heard many stories from Till and I cherish every one I have. Mr Till is up in heaving singing down to all of us now oh how i can hear your voice. You will be forever missed and you family in my prayers. God bless you and your family.
