Tia, there are three words that I can say about you 1. Amazing. 2.resilient 3. Strong willed.. You've always been the type of woman that has done it her own way, no matter what anyone said. You've always been a fire cracker and always sparked that fire in me to who I am today. Speaking with you a month ago was a treat but I will always miss you… May you rest in peace my dear Tia! Love you !!!
