I am so saddened by this news. Tina and I would laugh ALOT together at school! Her laughter was contagious! Combined with those dimples and twinkling eyes (that may have been mischief ) She has always been a happy memory for me. A good friend , who when she hugged you…you felt it! I’ve looked for her over the years but didnt know the last name Smith! I only knew her as Thompson. I will forever smile while thinking of her.♥️

This absolutely breaks my heart. One of my best friends in high school. So many great memories, when we went to DC for the Senior trip, we had so much fun, going to the skating rink every chance we could. Many of sleepovers we had. I will miss her dearly My thoughts and prayers go out to Frank and her family.
