Hurts me to my soul to hear of your passing. I know its been a few years since we last spoke and unfortunately going thru my own sickness I kept saying I'd get in touch again soon as I'm better or soon as I've done this or that and it never happened. My mom always said we looked like 'Mutt and Jeff'.. Whoever they were, because I was tall and you so short but we just laughed about it. I've lost so many people special to me in some way growing up the last few years... My sister, my brother, Aunt, cousins and friends to many to count. You were a big part of my life at one point and always considered special to me no matter how long it's been since we last spoke. I hope you're soaring with the 👼 angels. Your family is in my prayers, I know they're missing their little firecracker. I sure am thinking of you and wishing I'd just picked up the phone. Love you Tanya.

Tanya it's so hard to hear of your passing. We grew up together and spent countless hours together as young children. We went to school together, stayed with each other & went skating together. You will forever have a special place in my heart!! Rest easy now with David & Diane. I will see you again one day my friend!! Love you always!!! My prayers are with the family!!

We went to school together and unfortunately lost touch but I’ve thought of her often through the years. She was a “spunky” and fun, loving person to be around. To see she became a police officer is no surprise at all!
Thank you for your service sweet lady!
