    To the entire Contrada familia
    It is with great sorrow to hear about the loss of Tina. I will always remember Tina as a dedicated hard working woman that protected her family with all her heart and soul.
    Every time I would see her she always greeted me with a big warm smile and hug!
    She once told me how happy she was that Linda and I remained close friends all these
    years. I will never forget it!
    I pray you will all find the strength in the Lord during this difficult time.
