Carl SR and Family,

My deepest sympathies on Tina's passing.

While she only visited the office a few times,I always enjoyed speaking with her.

I knew Tina from the time she was 5 years old and until she was about 16 years old.  A lovely and sweet girl who wanted what we all want in life.  To be loved and treated right.

I hope she found that love and kind treatment after she left 'home'.  Once she left 'home' I never heard from her again and often wondered about her, hoping the best.
