  6. Tina had such a beautiful soul. Always willing to tell everyone the truth, good and bad, and that is what I always admired most about her. She had a way with words that always made me rethink my life decisions and look at everything from a new perspective. Although we grew apart these past few years I always looked at her as a woman of honesty and integrity, a role model in life, and a friend that could be counted on regardless of how long it had been since we last spoke. She was always there for anyone in need.

    I will miss you sweet lady.

  7. Sammy and I are so very sorry that Tina is no longer with us, but we are joyful knowing that she is with our Lord and Savior and her son Doug. We’re praying that the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Amen.
