Tanya was such a unique individual, full of fire and laughter. There was never any doubt where you stood with her. If she liked you, she loved you. If she did not care for you, watch out ! Sue and I are very proud of her for fighting so hard for so long, giving us added time with her. Rick was her secret weapon whose devotion never wavered. We will always love and miss her. We shall cherish the many memories. I will mostly miss the laughs we shared every time we got together. Love you Tanya. - Ron and Sue
