    Ms Tina was a sweet and funny lady….she will definitely be missed…RIL and fly high.

  • Heather and Tuan Phan Posted July 2, 2021 8:43 AM

    Mrs.Tina was a sweet lady. She was like a mother to me and I’m happy I was able to meet her and pamper her. She loved getting her nails done. Sometimes when the family couldn’t take her to my salon on the day she wanted, I would make time for her to pick her up. I knew how much she enjoy to be pamper. Going to miss you Mrs. Tina! You will never be forgotten. Love you very much. See you one day with our lord.
