It is so nice to read all the amazing tributes to Tina. It is true she made everyone feel they were her favorite human in the world(surely I am the exception and really am her favorite:)).

I am not sure how to begin writing down how special Tina and Dale are to the Toomey's. We met 7 years ago at a wine dinner, then months later moved in across the street. Being across the street neighbors afforded us so much time with Tina and Dale. Rarely a day went by we we didn't see both of them. We enjoyed all our travels together and also loved just sitting at home trying to decide whose wine was better:).

Tina had the biggest heart in the world. She was a fierce and loving friend. Tina would do anything for anyone! She was hilarious with a very dry wit. Tina's smile would light up the entire room!

Mike and Tina had a special relationship as well. We both miss her dearly and I pray every day for Dale to find joy in this world without Tina in it.

Sending lots of love and hugs to you Tina in heaven!

It’s been so nice to see all of he photos from all of Aunt Tina’s friends and family! It is quite obvious that she valued creating memories with those she loved. I am so very grateful for our special times together! She always made me feel like I was her favorite!! Now I’m reading these beautiful tributes, it seems like she made everyone feel this way! I am missing her phone calls “ just checking in on you honey!”
She and Aunt Kate gave me the gift of a friendship with my cousins. That is the greatest gift of all! Viva Las Primas! Viva Las Chicas!

Tina, my love, it's been nearly two months since your passing, freeing you from from the terrible effects of that horrible disease. I am comforted that you are free, but I miss you more than I can put into words. I will go on, as know you would want, but it's going to take time for me to learn to live a joyful life without you. Thank you so much for all the love you gave to me, your family, and all the people whose lives you touched. You truly will be forever missed.
Your loving husband and life partner,

We have had the pleasure of knowing Tina and Dale for more than 30 years and have many fond memories. Tina’s spirit and zest for life was apparent to everyone she encountered.  Tina loved to engage in conversation – whether serious or fun – and could more than hold her own with anyone. Tina sincerely cared for everyone – family, friend, or colleagues – and enriched her relationships with her sincerity and great sense of humor. We are thankful that Tina was able to spend so many great years with Dale and her family and will always remember her with a smile– as Tina would have it no other way.

Dale, Christina and Kevin!

My heart is shattered to pieces. I deeply mourn Tina’s departure. When I think of Tina I see the twinkle in her eye when she spoke of her beloved family and adored adventurous trips together. The sense of humor. The genuine care for others. The smile that lit up a room. The most kindest soul.

Dale, your admiration to Tina could be seen for miles. Your caregiving through the last couple years are to be applauded. You are a true “Mentch”.

Blessed that our paths have crossed.
I will always cherish Tina’s memory.

I love you so very much!

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.
Susan and Von Campbell
