I am sorry for your loss. She was a friend of my mom and I know both of they are having a grand time in heaven! "Ms Tinky" was always special to me and my family. I always admired and modeled myself after women like she and my mom. Tiny was direct and honest in her answers and if you did not want to know what she thought you should not have asked. She was truly and faithful member of Bridgeton United Methodist Church and a hard worker in our church. Blessings and our prayers go out to the family.

I have fond memories of "Aunt Tinky". She kept in touch with my mother, Emily, on a regular basis by phone. As a child, it was always pleasant to answer the phone when she called. She was one of the warmest and friendliest people I ever knew.
