Our deepest condolences. Tia will always be remembered by her infectious laugh and her incredibly sharp mind. Her special prayers that she would bless us with after our visits with her will truly be remembered by our family. We find much comfort knowing that she now is in the presence of Our Lord whom she worshiped daily. We should all feel blessed knowing that she will forever be watching over her entire family. Rest in Peace Tia.
