I can't think of anyone who was more sweet than Mrs Tina. So many will miss her until we meet again. Mrs Toni, Chase and family your loss is great but may her memory of a sweet smile bring comfort. Condolences, prayers, hugs and love sent.

Mammaw Tina was nearly 100 years old!! She dedicated her life to her large immediate and extended family. She was one of 9 children and is preceded in death by all but her youngest sister, Phyllis M. Fressina. Mammaw Tina was a member of the Catholic Daughters for decades and said her prayers on her knees multiple times a day. She never forgot a birthday and giggled when she sang the happy birthday song. We laugh and giggle about how how she called a napkin a nap-a-kin. I remember the days when the entire family would gather around the table on Sundays at Mammaw and Pappaw's and share stories and the current happenings in our lives. Mammaw cooked everyone's favorite dishes and desserts and some of those recipes are now gone forever. I'll cherish those days until I leave this earth. The closeness of all of us, and with those that now are gone, felt so wonderful.
