Tina , 11 years have now gone bye and I miss you more now than I ever did. You 're on my mind constantly,so many things remind me of you or the things you used to do. I just smile and think a little of you. You have always been my shining light, sometimes when I'm feeling down I think of some of the things you used to do and it changes my whole day. I love you, honey, I always did and always will , I know you are in the peaceful place that you have sought for so long, your Dad.

Dear Diane & family...

After Tina was an adult, we didn't see each other as much as we would have liked...for no other reason than we just get busy with our lives....but each time I saw Tina she always hugged me and told me how much she loved me. Of course the feeling was mutual.

As I am writing this, my heart is so incredibly heavy and I miss her so very much.

Many precious memories flood my mind of Tina. She was such a beautiful child -- both inside and out. I knew that she would grow up to be a beautiful, elegant woman - but the neat thing about it was that she was totally unaware of just how beautiful she was.

Tina was never arrogant, never proud and never made fun of anyone no matter how they looked or how they acted.

I heard it said that you can tell a person’s character by how little children and animals respond to them. Even as a young child, children and animals were always drawn to Tina's gentle, sweet spirit. I think that sums it up.

I know this has been a very difficult year for you all. Hold tight to the many, many wonderful memories of precious Tina and hold tight to our Lord Jesus (casting all your cares on Him). He will bring you more comfort than you can imagine.

I never had the honor of knowing Tina but have come to know and love many of her family members. After almost a year I have had the privilege of hearing many wonderful stories about Tina from my dearest and most loved friend, Danielle. I feel I truly missed out on knowing her. My deepest and most sincere thoughts go out to all of Tina's family and friends who loved her during this difficult time of approaching the 1year mark and through all the days that follow. It's so apparent that she was a real joy to anyone that met her and she will be loved and missed by many. May the love she shared with many always be remembered and charished forever.
For those of the family I have come to know, I love you and thank you for sharing your memories of Tina with me.
Sincere love and sympathy,

Tina we are coming up on your one year anniversary of passing. It has been a very difficult year for me. I lost my sister and best friend. You are missed and loved by everyone in the family. I am trying to do what you would want me to by standing by your boys and filling in until we all can meet again. There is not a day that goes by that I don't think about you and what a wonderful, thoughtful and caring person that you were I miss you with all of my heart and love you very much.

To Tina's family, I met Tina when our boys were at Beaches Episcopal together. Then she would pop up form time to time after that because we had mutual friends. Tina was always friendly and always talking about her boys. Know that she loved you very much and she was very impressed by each of you. My sympathies to her entire family.

My heart and sympathy goes out to the family. I was saddened when I heard the news about Tina. I'll remember Tina as when we were kids growing up together on old Millie Drive - she would call me "Mikie". I pray that God brings over time comfort, peace, and understanding to the family.

In remembrance of Tina, may she rest in peace.

Her friend, Mike Crevar

I wish Tina knew how many lives she touched. She had a gift that she wasn't aware of. Tina was such a giver, didn't know a stranger and always saw the best in people. Tina, was as friend to all that knew and loved her. I hope that she has found the peace she longed for. She will be missed, but her memory will live on forever.

I have known Tina and her family for over 30 years and I have no words. All I can do is send my love and prayers. Tina and I were best friends for many many years and I loved you dearly (even when you got me in lots of trouble! :) ) We shared a room when we kids (and you in your passive aggressiveness would only make your 1/2 of the bed and leave mine messy) We had many years of teenage fun (and as young adults!)...Oh the stories I could tell! I used to love waking up in the middle of the night to giggle with you about the crazy things we did. You were in my wedding and there for the birth of my daughter (and even came over to give Alex her first bath when I was terrified!) I wish we had seen more of each other over the past few years but when I did see you, it was like no time had passed at all. I love you sister and I will see you some time in the future. Till then...watch over those beautiful boys and your wonderful bunch of family who love you soooo much. Well I guess I did have a "few" words...I'll write the book later!

Tina was one of the sweetest people I have ever known. I will never forget when I met her nearly 10 years ago and how she was the one person who welcomed me into an unwelcoming group. Since that time, she remained a friend. She seemed to always exude light and beauty. I will miss her. My heart is with you Josh, Chase and Andrew and of course you, Rick. I'm so sorry for everyone's deep loss.

I have known Tina for years and met her through swimming. We always seem to catch up while running into each other at Beach Hut. She was a wonderful person who loved her children dearly.

To the family of beautiful "little" Tina Kowalski, who we grew up across the street from, I am so very very sorry that she was taken far too soon from you. Our family has many comforting memories when we think of our childhood on Millie Drive, Tina will always be a part of those memories. God Bless you all and give you comfort and strength. I will be thinking about you all and praying for everyone. Diane and Danielle, the Crevars love you and have never forgotten you. We are so sorry. Michael is in Afghanistan and will be very sad to hear of Tina's passing, but would want to know, I am certain. Please let us know if there is anything we can do for you in this time of need.

It is my conclusion that Life is only a preparation for something better and our existence in this world is training for a better life to come. I was very saddened to hear about Tina Marie Block (a daughter, a sister, a wife, a mother, a friend and many more) passing. While I know that words are only a small gesture of support, I want you to know that her radiant SPIRIT and SMILE has touched many people's lives as it has mine. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

To the family and friends of Tina, I am so sorry for your loss. I have only worked with Tina on the business side for a few months, and that was enough to see how much energy and spunk she had. What a magnetic person. She had the kind of energy that will keep her presence felt for many lifetimes. God Bless.

My name is Mary Gravel and I am the daughter of Rose Warren and sister of the late Patricia Bell. Rose used to babysit the boys when they were little and was totally devoted to the family. She loved them dearly. and talked about them constantly. Although she may not totally remember Tina when I tell her this terrible news (due to the effects of Alzheimer's), I know she would want me to express her heartfelt condolences to the family. I only met Tina once, yet I knew immediately why everyone was so fond of her. She was a very special person and will be greatly missed.

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal,
Love leaves a memory no one can steal.

Tina was a beautiful woman who dearly loved her family and friends. I will miss her impish smile, quirky voice messages, words of encouragement and laughter we have shared over the past 15 years.

She will never be forgotten.

Tina was one of my best friends. She was kind-hearted and generous to a fault. She was a good mother. She was a successful businesswoman. She was a good friend where good friends are hard to come by. This world is less without her. To her 3 great sons: she recently told me how incredibly much you meant to her. Never forget that. I will miss her terribly and always.
