A Mother's Love
Advice you depend on, courage to try,
Smiles when you're happy, hugs when you cry.
Pride in your talents, warmth and affection,
Memories that give you a special connection.
A great sense of humor, interests you share,
And, whenever you need her, just knowing she's there.

We were sorry to hear about Tina's passing, and we will keep her and the Willard family in our prayers. We were able to see Tina and the Willard cousins in August 2018 at the Clague Park family picnic. I also remember stopping by Parklane Hosiery as a kid with my mom, visiting with Tina and sharing a laugh. Love, Kim Valus Tuminaro and family

I will miss my Aunt Tina very much!! May her memory be for a blessing. I remember spending Thanksgivings of my youth together with everyone else in my parent's basement with her. They're great memories. Love you!!
