Tina was amazing to my family! Over these past 3 years, Tina has been the sweetest lady that I was so happy to have in my life and be able to call her grandma Tina! My sister's and I loved going out to lunch with her and hearing all about her childhood stories. She always made sure we had desert, even if we were about to bust out of our seams. What I loved most about Tina, was how she made us feel like family and truly love us. I will forever be appreciative of how she and Dale has made my family and I feel.

Love, The Edmonson Girls!

Tina was a bright light with a constant smile. Her humor and quick wit always amazed me. Her ability to honestly and openly speak what was on her mind was an inspiration. We are thankful for Tina and honored to call her our friend.

In 2016, Dale called us to invite us to meet him andTina for lunch at Brennan's restaurant in Houston. After so many years of being out of touch, it was wonderful to get reacquainted with him and Tina. It was a such a fun day, sharing family and life stories with humor and lots of laughter.

Tina was warm, friendly and there was no doubt she loved her family first and foremost. We will think of that day with freaat fondness and remember Tina's very special and beautiful spirit

Well, where to begin. Sometime ago, Tina, Kate, my sister, Mary Ellen and I decided we needed to see more of each other. Mary Ellen and I lived in Ohio. So we started “Las Primus”. Every other year we got together and each time it got better and better. One year ME and I were very tired from traveling so we “maneuvered” electric carts around HEB and scared the hell out of T&K. Luckily we didn’t bump into them or the customers. One year the 60 year old “girls” decided to do aquatic swimming for the Sr. Olympics. We didn’t get any ribbons because we couldn’t get our legs up straight and up in unison. But we did try. These might not be as funny to read, but perhaps Kate can demonstrate! One last memory, we spent Las Primus in Las Vegas. And an Earthpuake hit. We thought the plaster was crumbling until mngt. Came and said we were to walk down the stairsNOW! OK, but we all in our nighties! YES we did. We were directed to a vacant lot across the street with the rest of the aged one until we got the all clear”. Oh the whistles and catcalls we got when we returned thru the front doors. Oh the laughs and good memories we have and now ME and Tina are reminiscing up in heaven. God, please take care of them, if you can.

I first met Tina through our work; Gratefully, our friendship blossomed well beyond our being colleagues.  Though we always lived in different states, that distance could always be bridged. Time between visits didn’t matter to our friendship either– we’d pick right up where we left off without skipping a beat. And she was right there when I needed her most. She came to Colorado to care for me after my double knee replacement. She made me laugh…not good since it hurt when I laughed, but we sure had fun. Putting my compression stockings every morning was a team sport and on made us both cry with laughter. I am glad no one captured those Lucy and Ethel moments. She also came to Colorado another time when I needed emotional support during a family challenge. She said she just needed to be there. I needed her to be there though I’d have never asked. Yet she and Dale were there.
Dale and my husband, Von, were easy and wonderful to add into our friendship. The four of us shared many special memories in Jackson Hole, Austin, Colorado and on Maui. I’ve attached a picture from when we all gathered In Jackson for the eclipse. What a weekend that was!
Tina was a force of nature! She was quick-witted, candid, and had a great dry sense of humor. I will miss our conversations, our tears, our laughter, and her mischievous grin with that twinkle in her eyes. Aloha for now. Until we meet again.

Favorite Family to Photograph

Shared by Brandi Nellis on February 25, 2021
I was hired by Christina Wilson years ago to photograph her children. I believe Tatum was turning one years old.  Over the years, we turned those shoots into photographing the entire family every October to try and put together a good Christmas card for them.  I'll never forget the first time Christina brought Tina to one of our early shoots to photograph the kids.  TINA was standing behind me making silly faces, dancing and trying all sorts of things to try and make the kids to laugh.  They weren't budging with their stone cold faces.  When all of a sudden I feel cold water on my head!  Tina had drizzled some water from her water bottle onto my head and the kids went nuts laughing and smiling!  I knew right then that I loved this lady.  I'm going to miss Tina so much! Love, Brandi

Thelma and Louise

Shared by Sheila Cole on February 24, 2021
I have so many stories to share from my friendship with Tina for over 50 years and especially our travels with just the 2 of us to Africa, Hong Kong, Europe, etc.  This particular one we always referred to as our Thelma and Louise trip,was an especially memorable one because upon my insistence to cross country with her when she was relocating from LA to Austin, she agreed to avoid the travel alone.  Although it was only 2 days, we laughed and ate our way together remembering old times and loving the best Mexican meal we ever had in El Paso.  Our only regret was we never hooked up with a Brad Pitt along the way but prided ourselves in making record time when Tina was at the wheel putting her pedal to the metal in Tina fashion.  God love her and know she will be missed and cherished by everyone who met her, not to mention, my mother,  who was not always fond of everyone, adored her and will be thrilled to meet up with her again.

Cherished Friend

Shared by Mary Anne Castles on February 24, 2021
Tina was such a special woman to so many and I count my blessings for our paths crossing in our lifetime. Tina and I went toe-to-toe early on in our relationship, but as I became the mother of her first grandchild, beautiful Rylee – an understanding between two women began. I understood what it meant to be a mom and how fierce those feelings are for your children and a new chapter in our lives began. Tina has remained a constant source of inspiration – her passion for interior design; creating a beautiful home to share with family and friends; celebrating milestones and family vacations; and her tenacity as a business woman. She helped create the woman, mom and professional I am today. I could always count on Tina for advice, mentorship, encouragement and just pure love. Tina had such a huge open heart and loved her family dearly – she had a special place in her heart for my late husband, Mike Davis, and I could always count on her to reminisce with me about him. It takes a special person to continue to hold on to people and keep them close and I cherish that she never let me go. I love you so much Tina. God bless you and I look forward to the day we are together again.
