Thinking of Tina

She went to work just as before, we didn't know when she walked out that door 

I know that God watches over us all I just wish we would get a call 

Tina , you're out there that we believe and so we wait, we will not grieve

We miss you so much, 
but when the time is right, 
God will lead you to us into the night

So each and every day I pray that some sign we will receive and that is 
when and only when I will 
let myself breathe

Our heads held high, friends gathered near, 
when you return home we'll hug and cheer

So anyone out there, are you sure,  so as is it so, look for Tina, our angel and 
please let us know.
~Please be Gentle~

Please be gentle with me for I am grieving...the sea I swim in is a lonely one and the shore seems miles away...

Waves of despair numb my soul as I struggle through each day... My heart is heavy with sorrow...

I want to shout and scream and repeatedly ask "WHY"... At times my grief overwhelms me and I weep bitterly...

So great is my loss...

Please don't turn away from me or tell me to move on with my life... I must embrace my pain before I can heal...

Companion me through my tears...sit with me in loving silence...honor me where I am on this journey...

Don't forget me or my child... Listen patiently to my story.. .I may need to tell it over and over again...

It's how I begin to grasp the enormity of my loss...Nurture me though the weeks and months ahead...

Forgive me when I am distant or inconsolable...A Small flame still burns inside my heart...

Memories trigger both  laughter and tears...There is no right or wrong way to grieve...

We each must find our own paths... but... please will you walk beside me?

Thank you Lord, for all that I learn from my brokenness...and for the courage it takes to live with my pain...

and for the strength it has taken to stay on shore...

In Search of My Child

Each day I arise and greet the morning sun,
say a prayer to start my day, Things to do, a ton

My daughter still is missing, but I reach out to all
It is so frustrating, I feel like I've hit a wall 

But then I get this sensation and I know that 
God is there, he helps me to get through each 
day I know that he does care. 

So please keep up your prayers and
 if you think you see 
My daughter who is still missing ,
please won't you just call me ?

I know that He holds the answer, 
as it's night and I climb the stairs
another day has passed 
and I know he's heard my prayers.

Each day for me is a victory 
when I arise and start again 
Thanks to all my friends 
who stick by me end to end.

We Love and Miss you so much, Honey!
Thank you Queenie for this beautiful rose for our Tina
To My Lovely Tina

Three years ago you went away, 
For what reason, only God can say.
We have strength from above, 
Knowing that you are guided with love.
You are always with us, deep in our heart,
 It's as if we are together, Never apart.
A mother's love just keeps on going, 
With every deed, it just keeps showing.
I have made a site just for you, 
To show others my love is true.
The strength of years just will not go, 
The love for you I will always show.
My darling daughter I miss you so.
 I have told all the people that I know,
Please help me find you. 
They have shown such love, 
The same that guides from above.
I try to hide my on going pain, 
Strength from others I have gained.
To share has been the most blessed task, 
Please guide you back is all I ask.
Deep in my heart, my love shines on, 
Tina my daughter, 2 years has gone.
One day, we will find out,
 What this has been all about.
I will always love you this please know. 
My love for you just grows and grows.
You will always be here in my heart,
 As if we are never apart.

For Linda (Tina's mom)
My Dearest Tina,

On May 5, 1972, God blessed me with the most precious gift of all. He brought you to me and your dad. I am forever grateful. You have given me such wonderful memories for 
the 27 years we shared. I thank Him everyday for the time we spent together. I don't understand why or what has happened to you honey, but I do know that God has 
a plan for all of us and I remain faithful to Him and trust that He is watching 
over you and protecting you from harm.  I long to hold you in my arms 
and I know that one day we will embrace again,  if not in this world
 than in God's Kingdom and what a joyous day that will be.
I love you and miss you sweetie, with all of my heart!

Eternal love, Mom

With a heavy heart I come here today to tell you that our long 3 year search for our Tina has come to a tragic close. Remains found on December 26, 2002, and waiting 13 weeks for DNA test results proved that the remains belong to our beloved Tina. Although we now have some closure, this tragic story continues into a new journey for my family. There is a killer on the loose. Someone has information regarding the murder of my daughter and must come forward.
Please contact JSO 904-630-0500 with any information
