I am so deeply sorry to hear of the loss of my very dear friend Tina. I will remember always how devoted she was to her family and friends. It was always a joy to sit with her on her swing enjoying her garden and chatting on projects. She was so creative. She once decorated a cake for me in no time flat. I hold so many memories that I will treasure in my heart. Love and prayers to the family during this difficult time. May she rest in peace and may Perpetual Light shine upon her. Until we meet again sweet girl.
