Tia, there are so many memories that flood my heart when I think of you. I think the earliest start on Del Rio Street where we cousins spent many a day running around the neighborhood while you and mom, AKA Dot, visited over coffee and cake. The memories span so many years that there are too many to mention, so I thought I'd share a few of what I consider the highlights. There was the Frost Top Era. For those of us who still remember enjoying a good lemon ice, I know that will put a smile on your face. I can remember you and Tio Ruben flipping burgers and fries all the day long. There was the CDL Era...Yes, you heard that right...teeny, tiny Tia Carol drove that big "Yellow Dog" school bus around town. Hard to picture, I know, but quite impressive to see my cutie pie Tia's little stature commanding that bus loaded with kids. She could be tough when she needed to be, no doubt about that! Then there was the Daycare era....because guiding children in the ways of our loving Father was so important to her, (it must have been to tolerate all those stinky diapers for so many years!), she dedicated herself so completely to the education and well being of all those children. Needless to say, job well done good and faithful servant. Looking heart is filled with joy for a life lived so well. I will celebrate you with a smile for you are in God's hands celebrating eternally.
