My sincerest condolences to you and the family Gil. I will miss her terribly.

I remember when we lived in the trailer park and I was looking after Michelle and I ended up burning one of her pots making popcorn. I thought she was going to kill me. lol but she was so sweet about it.

I will also remember her, as Marie said, "she was a spitfire" for sure especially when she was protecting someone she loved.

You're in my thoughts and prayers,

Love always Tina
