I use to carry her around all the time when she was 1 and 2. She was so cute and sweet. I didn't see her again until she was 56 and she came to Houston for a visit. We had a wonderful time. She was an amazing women. She went thru so much with cancer and still was funny and had a wonderful
Personality. I am so thankful I got to know her as a women. I will miss her alot.

The first time I held my baby girl I fell
head over hills in love with her.
She will forever be in my heart.
When I see her again I will hold her again.
When it is my time come and get me and we will walk home together.

Tina was one of my best friends!! I looked forward to her coming over and she would come at least once a week. She was the kindest person I have ever met. She often brought food, especially her famous chicken casserole. She always had something for everyone even if it was a candy bar. Anytime she went out of town, she always remembered her friends and would bring back
a token of her adventure. I am so glad that she was able to go to Texas and visit her mother. She was so happy when she returned.

She was the strongest person I knew. Through her long illness, she never wavered. She always had a smile on her face. Her sense of humor was wonderful. She always had jokes to tell that were so funny and we would laugh as a group. "The group" included Ilene Bodenheimer, Wendy Taylor, Tina and myself. We were thick as thieves and enjoyed each others company so much. We would meet on Friday nights and have such a good time together.

Tina loved to work puzzles and always brought her puzzle book with her. She was very intelligent, hard working, loving and kind. Her husband, Odie, was the love of her life. She talked of him often and always received a phone call from him when he was on his break at work. They had a wonderful marriage and loved each other so much. I asked her one day if she knew how very lucky she was to have a husband like him and to still be together and in love for so many years. She agreed that she was indeed a lucky woman.

I will miss Tina so much. I have prayed for her soul and am sure that she is in heaven with Brandon whom she loved so much. She talked of him often and would tell us how much we would have liked him. I am sure that I would have. It won't be the same around her without Tina coming through the door with that smile on her face. She is not suffering any longer and for that I am grateful. But, it doesn't make it any easier when you are grieving the loss of a wonderful friend. I love you so much, Tina, and will see you again one day.

I have so many dear and loving memories of all of us. We were known as the "Golden Girls", Wendy Taylor, Denise Howard, Tina Braden and myself. We were never sure who was who, but we enjoyed trying to figure it out.

Tina has always been my go to girl. She was kind, honest, sweet, adorable, cute and so very funny. She was a true friend. She never let me down. She lifted my spirits by just entering the room.

She had an awesome husband who she adored and would talk about him with so much love in her heart. They were soul mates for sure.

I will miss her with all my heart and soul, there will never be another Tiny Tina. Goodbye my dear sweet friend until we someday meet again. I love you to the moon and back.
