Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • My deepest sympathy goes out to the family. Tina was a kind caring woman who always made me feel like part of the family. She could say a prayer on the spot like no one I know. You will forever be missed. My prayers are with you on your journey home.💙 Shannon - Posted by: Shannon (My sisters Mother in law ) on: Nov 03, 2018

  • I've known Tina practically all my life, she was a wonderful and special person, always a smile on her face. While it's very sad knowing I won't see her beautiful smile anymore, it's a comfort to know she'll be reunited with her family in heaven and her best friend and sister Florence Cook... You will be forever missed but never forgotten - Posted by: Rita Olson (Friend) on: Nov 03, 2018
