My thoughts & condolences to the family

I knew Tiffany as one of the sweetest little girls. One that would melt your heart. I didn’t have the privilege of knowing Tiffany as an adult, but by all accounts she was still the same sweet girl, large of heart and sweet of soul. My sympathy to her dear mother, who worshipped the ground Tiffany walked on and arrived always to give her her all. And, that you did, Laura. You should be proud of the beautiful woman you helped create. My sympathy also to the rest of Tif’s family and hope you can find some comfort and peace during this trying, sad time.

I met Tiffany at the Womens Pro Rodeo world finals rodeo at Tulsa in 2010 with Troy. I remember how vibrant and full of joy she was and how glad I was for Troy he had met such a beautiful wonderful person. She bought out so much happiness in his eyes and face when he looked at her. I send my condolences and heartfelt sympathy to all Tiffany’s family who I dont know, and to my fellow Aussie friend, Troy, I feel for you now am thinking of you. I know, because of Tiffany being in your life, you will have wonderful memories of a great love and friendship that most people only ever dream of.

My deepest condolences to Laura and all of Tiffany’s family. I had the privilege of knowing Tiffany as a little girl and would babysit for her. She was such a bright light, such a sweet child with a beautiful smile. I, also, did not know her as an adult, but know she touched the lives of so many. Rest in peace, Tiffany and may your family be comforted my many happy memories.

Our thoughts and prayers are with this entire family as they celebrate Tiffany’s life. She was loved by many and that shows what kind of a person she was. She will always be with you Troy…just watch for the signs. Pennies on the ground, dew on a flower, the smell of her favorite tea or the sunshine on your cheek. Never forget how much she loved you all.

I cry as i write this, not for Tif because shes at peace now, but for you the family that lost such a wonderful person to soon. People like her dont come along very often and we were all lucky to know her. I think of her often and have always kept her in my heart since our childhood. Another star shines in the night sky now.

I am so sorry for your loss. Tiffany was such a beautiful, sunny person. I got to know her from boarding my horse at Traiteurville and through Laura. Always knew her as caring so much for her horses and birds. She was so much fun! She definitely made the world a better place!!
