Thoughts for Tina R. Tyson;

  • Joan and John Curran says:

    Our deepest sympathies to your family. It was great attending St Mary’s with you guys. After we moved, it was great running into Tina at Regency and CVS.

  • Aimee Casey says:

    My deepest sympathy goes out to Tina’s whole family . I had the great pleasure/honor to have met and to have worked with Tina many years ago at Sears . She was a amazing soul, she didn’t have a mean bone in her body . I will always remember her smile and warm heart . We stayed in contact after sears and that meant alot to me. Tina will be missed by many but she will never ever be forgotten.

  • Barbara Elliott McKirchy says:

    Darling Tina, As we would always address each other on the phone. Tomorrow I will
    Visit you in church, this seems really strange to me. We should be meeting up to go to a movie, a county fair, shopping, for lunch, getting together with the ladies. This seems so wrong! My dear friend I will be so lost without you. Every time I turn around in my
    house, every room will remind me of you because there is something so special you made for me, as I am sure you have done for others as your heart had no boundaries.
    I will hold you in my memory forever, you were just priceless to me & Jimmy, he held the
    Mermaid statue in his hand & just shook his head. We will not say goodbye because you will always be with us. Good nite Darling Tina…….
