My mamma was always there to comfort me or give advice. I loved getting to call her several times a day, even if it was just to tell her I was on my way home. I miss her terribly, but know she is at peace. She was, and still is, loved by SOO many people. And for that I feel so incredibly grateful. I love you mamma!

Tinsy was one of my favorite people. She never stopped smiling and was ready with a hug every time I saw her. She was fun loving and delightful to be around. To her sisters: You were blessed to have one of the best sisters!
My sympathies to all.
