Very sorry to hear of Tish's passing. I worked with her at Gosiger since 1997. She was like a big sister to me, and was always there to listen and advise me on personal problems. Was always fun to joke around with too, and we all had fun working with her. She was liked by many customers as well. She will be missed very much by many. Kept her in my prayers and know she has gone to a good place with no more pain. My condolences to Frank and her other family. God Bless.

Tish was our Parts Manager at Gosiger for many years.  She was much loved by customers and highly respected by her peers and suppliers.  And a great "keeper of the culture".  Very sorry for your loss.  I know she will be sorely missed.  Sincerely, Pete Haley

Shocked.  I am so heartbroken for anyone that knew Tish.  She and I worked together at Gosiger for years.  Tish was the best mentor and friend that I have ever had the pleasure of sharing an office with.  Tish listened to great music, she wore great clothes, she had the best hair, loved her girls (SO MUCH) and was just such one of the greatest human beings, ever.  he world was so much better with her in it and I'm sure that is felt by all of her friends and family.  Tish...I can only regret all the years that we haven't talked since I left Gosiger and remember the years that we worked together.  You were one of my favorites humans that I have known, ever.  With love, peace and sisterhood, Joelle High-Aldinger (* Tonight, I will listen to Leo Kotke and John Prine in memory of my wonderful friend).
