Hey Tina,
It's been a LONG LONG time since we have seen you (& your family). Not even sure if you remember me... But it was fun getting to know you better. It's funny how since we haven't seen each other for so long I still think of you as a kid in my mind. Nice to see you are a beautiful young woman now!!!
