Tina was a very sweet lady. She was a good friend of my Mom's for many years she also looked after me and my sister after school. I would get my mother-in-laws groceries at the commissary. If Tina saw me she would motion for me to go through her line where she would bag the groceries then we would walk to my car and talk about old times and her family. She will be missed. RIP Tina.

I only met Ms Sparky twice but I immediately knew why she was called Sparky. What a delightful woman and well loved by all who knew her. I am sorry she is gone and I believe this last trip will end in joy when she meets all her loved ones that preceded her. I can only say that she must have been one great Mom to raise a woman like my friend, Dolly. I pray for peace and courage and blessings for those she left behind. They will always miss her and I hope they will tell all the wonderful stories of this much loved woman
