I miss you Tina so much . You never spoke an unkind word about anyone. You always listened when we had a problem. You worked so hard and never complained when the work kept piling. I loved your smile and sweet gentile spirit. You were such a great example of how a Christian should live and treat others. You loved your family dearly and always spoke so caring of them. I know you are so happy to be with your husband and son. And you can sing again with your new voice. We will miss you but someday soon we will meet again. I love you.

Tina was truly one of the sweetest souls I have ever had the privilege of knowing. Growing up I used to always look forward to sleepovers at Hallie’s on the weekend and Tina would always make me feel so welcomed and at home. When I was attending Liberty University I always looked forward to going to printing services to pick up projects. I enjoyed seeing her beautiful smiling face and chatting with her. I can’t believe she is gone we lost a real life angel. I know she will be so greatly missed by many.

Tina was the most loving kind compassionate person I ever knew. We remained friends although my relationship and tie to the family dissolved years ago. We all lost a very special angel when she left this world. "You're so good to me" was a phrase we shared that originated in the maternity waiting room the night Christina, my daughter was born.

Tina was a beautiful human being and I'm grateful to God for the crossing of our paths during Steve's time in Hospice. Her tireless devotion to his care was truly amazing to me, and I admired her quiet strength I told her many times that she was one of the strongest women I'd ever known, and she always laughed and disagreed., but I meant it. Working in nursing for 30 years has helped me develop a sense for quiet strength, and my faith has helped me to recognize inner beauty. She had both, and I feel privileged to call her friend. Hallie and Monaca, you are both in my prayers.
