My condolences to Tina’s family. I was saddened to hear of Tina’s passing and send prayers for her family and friends. Tina’s family lived next door to a friend of mine back when I was a kid and I remember seeing the little twin girls out playing when I visited my friend. They were fun to watch. I am so sorry that she is gone now.
