    Tanya will be missed by many… She touched my life and we became great friends when she stared to come to my beauty shop to get her hair done. I have watched Peyton grow up to become a very handsome respectful young man who has some great morals instealed in him by his mom who loved him with ever ounce of her heart and soul…. He was her life and her reason to fight so hard! She always smiled that big smile even in the darkest of times she smiled I will never forget that. She was always happy and willing to help out her friends and family. She will always be remembered by her SWEET smile, happy go lucky attitude, and her never give up and tough self.
    Peyton always know your mom loved you like no other and would walk to the end of the earth for u. She has taught u right from wrong, and how to be a gentleman your future wife will have one check of a husband because of your mother. I will always be here if u ever need anything. Like your mom u always have that same smile and happy go lucky attitude. Look and pray to God and he will life u up and guide u thru these hard times just like he did your mom I pray for you and your family that u all find peace and understanding and that u all know that she won her battle and we will see her again. She will be there with you always guiding u along. Love u Peyton!!
    Rest easy SWEET friend and I’ll see u again……

    I was heartbroken to learn of Tanya’s passing. We didn’t get to see each other much anymore, but when we did, it was as if no time had passed. The last time I saw her she was doing well and winning the fight against this dreadful disease. And I kept her in my prayers, with hope that she would win this battle.
    Tanya was a good soul, and a genuine person, who loved unconditionally. I don’t think she ever met a stranger, and I know she has touched many lives. Her strength and courage in the face of adversity, and ability to smile through it all, was such an inspiration. She was one of the strongest women I’ve ever met, and I have no doubt that she fought to the end, to remain here with Peyton, who was the light of her life. I will always be thankful to have had her as my friend.
    Peyton, David, Dora, Lori and family…we are keeping you in our thoughts and prayers. May God sustain you, and provide you with peace, comfort and strength during this most difficult time.

    My sweet angel, I know you are watching over all of us. You are missed so much by everyone. I have moments where I can’t stop crying and then moments I can’t stop laughing. You should still be here with us. My heart aches everyday. I don’t have you to call in the evenings and vent to. I feel you with me when I really need you. You have a special place in my heart and you always will. I just still can’t believe you had to leave us. God knew he needed you worse than we did. Rest easy girl and I will see you again soon and we will never be separated again. I love you so much. Keep watching over us and sending down your love and that beautiful smile.

    7 months ago today we laid you to rest. It was the last time we saw your beautiful face. I know you are always watching over us. I hope we are making you proud. Peyton is growing into a wonderful young man. I know he misses you and he loves you very much. We all do. Not a day goes by you aren’t on my mind. I wish I could pick up the phone and call you and have our chats like we used to. I talk to you and I know you are listening to me and I can feel you with me when I need you the most. Until I see you again, keep smiling and know everyone here loves you and misses you.
