I saw that Deborah, Tina’s sister, posted on Facebook that Tina passed May 26.

Lets say that Tina kept it real. Her contiual battle with illnesses that were associated with older people such

as cataracts when she was 21... gall bladder went awry at 29 .. and a host of other ailments however this would not keep a great girl from doing what she envisioned. She attended culinary school in Maryland, and became a private chef for various people either in their homes or on their private yachts. She always had a story to tell and of course she shared the luxury of inviting all of her friends from time to time to enjoy and reap the goodness of her culinary expertise. She travelled far and wide with work and on her own. I can remember a trip to Italy with Teen .. and we shared so many laughs and escaped a few uncomfortable situations . She managed to always make us feel good about ourselves. She was curious and engaging . She had the capability to make all around her laugh with her and sometimes at her. That doesnt sound nice "at her" but she exuded this vulnerability that allowed me to almost mock her without judgement. She didnt take herself too seriously except on occasion however it was over in two minutes and onward to the next fun adventure. I loved Tina.. I enjoyed a comfort zone that I have with no one else. She afforded that and I am so lucky to have experienced so many damn good times. She will be so missed.

Nasty diseases take the good ones down. She suffered and kept going to see her physical therapist knowing that the end was close. She was a fighter and a lover of all.  I invite all of you to share a tale or two of your memories with  "Teen Queen"  . xxxxx

I do not have a tale to share of the "Teen Queen" as Nancy Cohn has done for Tina. However, I would like to acknowledge the very lovely words Nancy spoke on Tina's behalf. And so true, nasty diseases so do take the good ones down.

Beautiful Tina comments Nancy. Well done. I did not know Tina well and was not aware of her life and ailments. I'm glad you knew her and were able to have the friendship and times with her, she was an interesting character.

Yes, she was certainly an interesting character...

Tina was bold, brave and adventurous with a tenacity to never give up, no matter the circumstances. She was one of my dearest and truest friends since 9th grade. We shared decades of adventures, escapades and laughs together. Always interested and interesting, ready to find the humor, no matter what life was presenting. XOX

Great looks, that distinctive voice and the ability to converse with mannerisms where she was almost acting out the conversation are the qualities that I remember. Condolences to family and the close friends she held dear over the years. Thanks to Nancy Cohn for the detailed post. Uniquely interesting and funny Tina will be missed.
