We only knew Tannie for a short 7 years but came to enjoy and respect her love for her Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. There was no doubt who she put her faith and trust in everyday. We should all be so dedicated and faithful as she was. We will certainly miss her smile and laugh but rejoice in knowing we will see her again soon. Rest In Peace Tannie , until that day. John and Jane Dowling.

I loved her not only my spiritual mother, but also she was like a natural mother to me. I'm so lost at this point but she taught me so many things I have to put to use. If you babies need anything at all please know I am here for you. I love y'all so much.
