I had the pleasure of getting to know Tanya over the past ten years. My child is good friends with her youngest child so that was how we got to know her and her family. If there was anything that I wanted to know about happings around town, she was able to give me details, I think that she thrived on this type of information. I was over her house talking to her the day before she passed. There was a company jacket that I found at school that some of the lettering was coming off and she was describing to me what she did incorrectly with the heat while applying the lettering and the fine line between good adhesion and melting the material. She enjoyed getting into the details on whatever type of project that she was on. I remember one time that I came over her house, with that smile of hers, she said come look at our new travel trailer. Being all excited showing me all the details of the new trailer, including the stepparent entrance to the bathroom so that nobody would tract mud throughout the trailer. She seemed to be excited to show off any of her new projects or crafts that she was working on. Boy I am going to miss her, when it was just the two of us we would have some very good conversations over a variety of topics and that part of her personality I will miss the most. RIP Tayna but I do remember one night around the campfire she said that if she died that she was going to come back and tourmit us, lets hope that does not happen
