Tina loved to make her family and friends happy. She loved to cook and give gifts to others. Even when family and friends told her they were not hungry; she would always say I will make something and maybe you will be hungry later. She also spent much of her time searching for the best gifts, so she always had something to give when family and friends visited. With this mindset, she always put the happiness of others before hers. In the Tziavragos family, Tina was known as the Heart and her husband Bill was the Rock. Together they raised their sole son who is forever grateful for everything they have instilled in him and for all the sacrifices they made which ultimately helped him succeed and become the man he is today. Tina will truly be missed by all those whose lives she influenced. If there is one positive we can take away from this tragic event, it is to be kind to all and enjoy the journey of life each and every day. Forever in Our Hearts, Always on Our Minds….
