    Tine tine I will miss you forever. We looked out for each other. Did surgeties alike and feeling good about ourselves and now you left me. I’m crying all the time. My God I’m still in dis belief that I won’t see you dancing, singing and lighting up the place with all the festive celebrations. You had an outfit for every season holidays. Such a great sport uplifting us even when we felt down at work. Tina’s word, “I got you”. Always ready to help. May your soul RIP.

    The angels looked down from heaven one night they searched for miles afar,
    and deep within the distance they could see a shining star. They knew that very instant , that the star was theirs to gain, So they took you up to heaven, forever to remain.
    Look down on us from heaven keep us free from hurt and pain. You’ll always be within my heart until we meet again. Tina I’ve loved from the day I met you always so helpful and kind and was overjoyed when you entrusted me as Sheniece ‘s godmother, which I truly thank you, My family will miss you more than you know !!! Job well done…take your rest sweet one and give my baby Sheniece a big hug and kiss from her goddie.
