Words will never be able to be expressed as I have just found out about your death.  My heart has been so broken over the loss of my children in this war.  We talked at least once a week, and I struggled in November and December due to my children's deaths, so I was not on your page.  I finally realized I had not talked to you, that when I came to your page, I completly fell apart.  Rest in Peace Tina.  Hug my children for me. I love you with all my heart and soul

"TINER - This is DJ LeeBird. I will always remember when we met online, and on the phone too at times. I was a DJ at an online Radio Station, and you and I would entertain the mass's with our little "CHAT- WARS" - I was the OWL and you were always the "KITTY WITH CHOPPERS" (she knows what that means). I would pretend, in the chat during the radio shows, that I was the "BATTLE OWL" and we would do BATTLE at each show in the chats. It got everyone involved, taking sides, and really livening up the shows. It was all in great fun and I'll always remember and Treasure that memory.
TINER - You were one of a kind, and a great friend, though we never got a chance to meet in person, I am sure you were as great a person as I came to know online. So sad to see ya go, but I guess you have other matters to tend to now up above, with God and the angels. You be sure to take care up there, and please don't get into any trouble. Your working for the BIG GUY NOW, Helping the Angels at the gates of Heaven. We're not sad here that your gone, (too soon), We're just happy you were here and you shared your life with us all. We are all the better for knowing you. You Take care, and try to stay out of trouble, (Just kiddin').."LeeBird""

"Tiner, we sure are missing you!  I am proud that you called me your "sis".   You were one of the most patriotic people I've ever met.  I never saw anyone work as hard as  you.   You always had a smile or a joke to tell.   You just brightened up the world by being it.  I'll think of you often, but especially when I see the squirrels playing around, or any "kritter" that needs help.  I'm going to have to try to tame a squirrel the way you did in DC.  And  I'm really glad we had that trip to DC together.  It was a blast!   Tiner, you're the best!   I'll love you like a sister always and I will never forget you!   God bless you!!!"

"Tina I know we used to fuss as kids...but that just made it more fun. I know we where not best friends in childhood but you still endured me. If I went to see Mark you always saw Tina and Wendy. And it was so much fun to torture the pair. I saw you again for a brief moment in time much later in life. All grown up and now with your own adult life. Still the smart, snappy and hostile little girl I knew as a child. And I enjoyed seeing you squirm a little yet again.....And now to know a piece of my childhood has gone forever is painful. The little girl that fussed and squealed and raised all kind of heck and yelled "Mom/DAD" is no longer there to be aggravated later, is not with us anymore is so sad. And while you where not my best friend you will always hold a special place in my heart. Cause those times where much simpler. Seeing you bound down the long drive way to pass a sneer at me and Mark are forever gone. It leaves a lump in a persons throat. For while you and I where forever locked in childhood battles of the sexes you stole a little piece of my heart. And now its forever gone...And with you going first this time I look forward to seeing you on the other side. Bounding down the road to sneer at me and stick that tongue out and yell "GOD he's here"! I look forward to that day. And I hope to see you once again...cause while people might not be your best of friends. They can still have a wonderful impact on your life even though at the time they seem a mortal enemy. And for that Tina thank you for enduring me and you will be missed."
