When I think of Tina, I still see those big eyes and that beautiful smile, and to think of her being an angel watching over us, makes me smile. She will be forever missed and thought of... I can't believe she is gone... I think it will take us all a long time to realize our angel is in heaven... Our thoughts are with you all, and we love you all.

You all know how I feel about your family, you are my family too. There are no words to express how I feel about losing Tina. I guess God needed a beautiful angel to help him and he chose her.
May God comfort and help you in this time of grief and be with you always. Your family is always in my thoughts and prayers.

No. 45 - I Know That My Redeemer Liveth

- G. F. Handel

I know that my Redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth.
And though worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God.

(Job 19:25-26)

For now is Christ risen from the dead, the first fruits of them that sleep.

(I Corinthians 15:20)
