Mommy where do I even start... you were taken from earth way too soon 💔 I know how excited you were to move to NC and live in the mountains, and I must say I now understand why. It is truly gorgeous out here. I hate that I’m experiencing the mountains under these circumstances though. I wish you could of spent more time on earth with Allyson, Alianne & I. We love & miss you dearly! I can’t pick just one memory because I have so many wonderful memories with you. I just want to thank you for raising me to be a strong & independent woman. I will pick up where you left off with Allyson, and raise both our Ally girls to be just like us. I hope it’s beautiful where you are and you’re finally with your mom & sister. I love you so much & I’ll continue to keep your spirit alive in my home & remind Ally that you’re always with her 💙🕊

Tanya, you were such a beautiful friend to me and my kids. My heart is in pieces right now and I can't seem to keep it together. I will forever miss our conversations we had everyday. Knowing you're home just because I can hear your music jamming down the road. God, im going to miss that. I knew how excited you were about this move out to the country. You were looking forward to the wide open space and peace and quiet. I know you were extremely ecstatic about Ally being able to experience the "great outdoors" as you said it. You guys were ready to start a brand new chapter in your lives.. I am so sorry for Cierra and Allyson. They are going through so much.. I pray for strength and comfort for your girls. I will do my best to be there for them if they ever need anything. While I am still here on this earth, I promise you that! So Please, Save me a seat next to you for when I get there! I will miss you something Fierce until then. Fly High with the Angels now. Love you girl xo

I am so lost thinking I’m not going have my long talks with you. Im going to miss those sweet texts from you on all special occasions. Happy what ever holiday or birthday it was, I could count on you to say “I love you mom, happy whatever it was.” Ever time I pick up a book to read, there is that book mark you bought me for Mother’s Day so many years ago. I’m going to miss you my sweet girl. Fly with GOD AND THE ANGELS. You will always be in my heart.

Tanya was my very best friend for over 18 years. She was the most loving and giving person I ever knew. Our daughters were the best of friends when they were little. No matter where we are or what we were doing we could always depend on one another. No matter what crazy things we did in life we never judged each other. Our friendship was one of a kind. We would talk for hours on the phone or face to face. We never had any type of disagreements. Just lots of laughters sometimes tears. I loved her so very much. She has left 2 amazing daughters and granddaughter behind that loves her very much. You will be missed my love.
