    To the Milstid family–I enjoyed working with Tina for the short time I knew her. I enjoyed our little talks when she came in every morning–but something was different today–no Tina, no little talk–totally shocked when I was informed of her passing. I can’t imagine what your family is going through losing a sibling and a child. Tina was a very caring, loving young woman inside and out. My families thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.

    I’m sorry for your loss Greg. I can’t imagine losing a sibling.

    My prayers and thoughts are with you and your family Greg. I had the wonderful opportunity to work with Tina and was also a friend. It’s hard to think that just this past Friday I waved goodbye and told her I would see her Monday. She was a true joy to work with, and was a friend to me when I needed one. I will always be grateful to her.

    Greg I am so sorry. I don’t know if you remember me, but I worked with Tina. She made mad laugh so hard sometimes I would cry. She talked about you all the time and I know you were her best friend. The world will seem a little dimmer without her in it.

    My beautiful and wonderful sister Tina passed on to a better place yesterday October 07, 2017 due to a car accident. She was only 42. I find it hard right now to understand how Gods plan could be to take someone so young and full of life with so many plans and reasons to live. Maybe one day I will understand why it was her time. She was my best friend, my heart, and part of my soul. I love her and miss her so much. I know that she is in a better place with my mother and other sister Janet. My world will not be the same without her.

    It is time at that intersection for a caution light. Too many accidents there.
