I met Tina in the Summer of 69. My sister Susan started babysitting them. She was 5 and I was 9. We had so much fun and were closer than sisters. Our child hood was great. I am so glad you are finder free from all the pain. Until we meet again, I’ll ss you later. I love You and I miss you Tina!
I’ll miss you cousin but I know your in a better place and waiting for me with the rest of the family. I’ll see you again.
We are in shock of your passing. You were a strong amazing wife, mother and grandmother. When you loved you loved hard!! You are now with the love ❤️ of your life..
I met you when I was 7 and you were 9. I’ll never forget the first time I ever saw you. I had just met Lynn and looked up just in time to see you riding your bike down the street with your sister Renee clinging to the back. Lynn, me,you, Tamra and Renee became the best of friends from that day on. I missed a lot of years seeing my friends when I moved away to Illinois, we lost touch for so long but no matter how much time went by we could always pick up right where we left off. What I wouldn’t give to sit and visit with you one more time. You were an amazing friend and I’ll cherish the memories of our childhood for the rest of my life, till we meet again my friend. Give Helen, Renee, Troy, Grandma Alice, Big Granny, my mama and daddy and of course our beloved fur-babies Jack and Taffy big hugs for me!! I love you so much my precious friend
