Mrs Tierney welcomed me into her family decades ago . She was a woman of strength and character who found something positive about all she met .
My heart breaks for all her family , but she now joins her parents, sisters , husband and daughter in the afterlife .
She will be missed by all of us to whom she gave comfort and loving guidance .

It is a sad day to learn of Viginia's passing, but she has joined Janet and her other loved ones in a joyous reunion in Heaven.

I send my deepest sympathy to the family.
