Life is Good: Tiny Downey Tribute



Today's post is in honor of Tina Downey who went to be with the Lord before I had a chance to know her very well. To read what others are saying, go to the A - Z Blog HERE.
Tina was active in the blogging community and supportive of her fellow writers.
 
We were friends on facebook. What I remember is her witty sense of humor and that everything had a positive side, even getting soaked in the rain!
 
One thing everyone knew about Tina is that she loved sunflowers!
 
This is for you, Tina...
 
Sunflowers!

Tina believed that...

In fact, Tina's blog was called Life is Good!
 
Such a lovely lady with a lovely way of looking at the world.
 
You are loved and missed, Tina.
 
Godspeed!
