I had the privilege of being Ms. Tina's caregiver for almost 3 years. She was not just a client but a dear friend. In those few short years we became very close . In spite of her bad health she was always so uplifting and kind. She was right by my side through the death of my grand baby. God sent me the sweetest soul to help me deal with that loss. I'll cherish the memories of our heart to heart talks . After her Dr appointments we would go for lunch and to thrift stores. That lady could spend hours! I mean hours in the thrift store! I would get tired and go find a chair and she'd just keep shopping. Lots of laughs we shared along with alot of tears. Im going to hold those memories close in my heart untill we meet again. I'll miss and love her dearly for the rest of my days on Earth. Your an angel now Tina. Your set free from all your illness and pain. I know God prepared a special place for you in his kingdom. Fly high my beautiful friend. I love you ❤️🙏

Gosh, so many memories to pick from. A thanksgiving many years ago, mama Tina wanted us to save the drumstick from the turkey (it was kinda a family tradition to give it to someone very special) she must have ask everyone in the house a hundred times about saving “just one” drumstick. Now mind you we always would had to have a couple turkeys to feed all of us, so I assure you there was always plenty of drumstick and everyone in the family knows we always save one drumstick for this special person, but non the less she keep asking till finally every drumstick in the house was put in front of her. I don’t think I have ever heard her and everyone in the house laugh so hard.
I will forever miss your smile, laugh, kind heart and your love. Rest In Peace mama Tina!!!
