    As a child the words that excited me most was to hear “We are going to Tine and Vernon’s this weekend!” I knew there would be great food, family, and love on the trip and the coolest cousin a kid could have in Rocky. He pitched baseball for Tate and played guitar. Such great memories of all of them growing up and still today. I offer my deepest sympathy to the whole family on the loss of Aunt Tine and regret I cannot be there in person for them today. Please know you are in my heart today and every day.
