    Sweet Tina, it is your one year anniversary of being with the lord and special thoughts come to mind. You were the daughter I never had in SC when you were a child. I have fond memories of you playing in the dirt, laughing and dancing to Michael Jackson’s songs. Life took us in different directions but reaching out to you every so often during the years made me smile. I will continue to reach out to you in prayer. I will always think of you and your sweet smile. Love you so much!
