  1. Familia Canales, Lamentando mucho la partida de Nina Tinita que tuvimos la oportunidad de convivir con ella y agradecerle el carino que le dio a mis hijas como de una Abuelita, la vamos a extranar mucho, pero sabemos que va a estar descansando en la gloria de Dios.

  2. Miguel, Rebecca & family, We are so sorry to learn of Tinita’s passing. We were fortunate to have been part of her life.
    Our prayers are with you during this difficult loss of your mother. We know she is a better place with God.

  3. Dearest Miguel, Rebeca and family,
    When the Lord calls our loved one home, He leaves a gift of memories in exchange. It’s hard to understand why people are taken from us, but find confort in knowing all of you were a special part of such a well-lived life.

  4. We are greatful we were able to know Cristina. She leaves a wonderful family as her legacy.

    Steve and Della
