This breaks my heart in pieces. We went to church together as Toddlers, we were good friends throughout school and worked together as waitresses. I was with her the day she found out Michael was on the way. We had a great time preparing for him and ate our weight in Chinese Food!! When I got ready to move, she bought my house in Sumter and lived there for years!! Just a few months ago we were going to the same church. She was so happy that Jinna was being baptized. I'll always remember her watching me play the piano and sing at church and she must have hugged me 5 times and kept telling me she loved me. I will love her eternally. I wish I could tell her just one more time how important she was in my life, and how proud I was of her. She lost so much thru the years, but kept moving forward. Her strength from the time she was just a teenager always amazed me. I will miss you Misty.. You have always been and will always be family. I love you! If I can help you guys in any way, please let me know! Love, Tina Smith Timmons
