I remember Tina from our years together at Moody. What a fun, fun-loving friend -- so many good times together. Even back then, she loved to serve her Lord -- now she is enjoying His Presence. So sorry for you loss John.

Tina will be remembered for her dedication to her Lord and her church. Also, by her Sunday School class, and those who had been in her class as a loving teacher whose main desire was for them to know the plan of salvation. Shirley Garrett

John, I am so sorry for your loss. I remember meeting Tina in 2005 when I was repainting the mural in Vincennes and we got our picture taken together. She was a very kind and sweet person and you two looked like you were made for each other. I cannot imagine how you are feeling right now. But I know that you were raised in a wonderful Christian family and your strong faith will carry you through this. Call me whenever you feel like catching up.

I am so sorry for your family's loss. Tina and I went to school together from Kindergarten thru high school. We were friends. I remember having lunch once at her home with all the kids around the table! So many laughs and so much fun. I have this wonderful memory of a very sweet girl. . . She was a great example of a good Christian woman, loving friend. I am so happy we reconnected through Facebook. Old friends are the best! Tina you will be missed! Love to you and your family, Kim Pingle Powers
