Tina will always and forever be in our hearts

Dear Friends,

The loss of Tina, daughter, sister, fiance, and friend, is so shocking and great that we cannot even begin to measure its impact. Tina illuminated our lives with her gorgeous smile, effervescent laugh, and appreciation for the subtle joys in life. She was the life of the party, the quiet confidant, the friend that you could count on for the unfiltered truth. With Tina, there was no pretense; just absolute genuine honesty, love and compassion. She was a generous and strong support system to so many. Tina often underestimated her academic capabilities but the irony is that she is the one who taught us all so much. As we rush around absorbed in our busy lives Tina always reminded us to slow down and celebrate not only the milestones of life but the relationships which define it.

We grieve not only for our tragic loss but for all that she has lost. Less than four months before her wedding day and weeks after launching her new real estate career, Tina was on the brink of a new beautiful life for which she had worked and waited so long. We grieve that we will not see her walk down the aisle to marry her perfect mate, Alex, or have the little girl, Mai, of which she dreamed. Her capacity for love was exponential and the world is a dimmer place without her.

"You'd be proud of Phuong, he decided to stop working for 'The Man,' and took a cushy job schmoozing clients on the golf course. I also convinced him to take a trip to Prague, and even though it was his first vacation ever, and he napped most of the time, he did pretty well.  He's still feeding young and impressionable minds a load of bullshit at Georgetown, but  it affords him to buy me a nice supper here and there. I'm still single, but maybe that will change after I go visit you this weekend and party with your bridesmaids. I also took your advice and decided to invest a little in the stock market this past year... looks like I'll be at least seven dollars richer, come retirement. Phoung put his academic credentials and reputation on the line, and helped me get in to a good calledge for smart people. If things stay on course, I should be finished and have my master's by 2027. You're missed dearly, and things are noticeably less fun without you, but know everyone is doing well."

""TODAY" would have been the phone call we would have made in wishing us Leo's a Happy Birthday as we both were to celebrate.  Miss my Tina.  I'll wait for your call on the 22nd.  Sure I will "HEAR" your laughter then."

This tribute was added by Yu Theresa Chen on 7th August 2015

"Happy would be birthday, my fellow Leo."

"Our hearts still aches in sadness and secret tears still, flow.  What it meant to lose you, no one will ever know."

This tribute was added by Marina Billere on 1st April 2015

"Tina, if I ever had a daughter, you are what I imagined. Her borrowing her moms clothes for job interviews etc.  I smile when I think of that vintage Versace dress that fit you perfectly, and me 5 years ago.  I will see you smiling in between the moon and stars, and I promise to smile back my dear."

This tribute was added by Eugene Martin on 29th March 2015

"The "emptiness" I feel right now can not be explained.  For me to have NO warning because you were not ill, sick, or bed ridden, your home-going caught me completely by surprise and disbelief.  Of the thousands of people who I have talked to in my life, yes Tina, you stood out as a lit candle in a dark room.  You "are" missed and will be forever by me not being able to hear your laughter or hear you call me and my wife on those special days.  A loving "daughter" you became to us both."
