    To Ashley Ash Ash as I called her. I’m so deeply sorry and saddened by the lose of your mother. She was like a 2nd mother to my daughter Jasmyn as I was to you. You and Jasmyn were always together during school, after school, played on the same volleyball teams, stayed at each other’s house like I said always together. Tiffany never complained about any of it. I will miss her beautiful smile and demeanor. Although things are tough right now and your heart is burdened know that with each new passing day things will get better because she’ll still be guiding you with Gods help looking down on you and the family smiling knowing you’re in good hands. Be strong and hold on to the memories. Remember A mother is with you always first in her lifetime then forever in your heart and memory. Sending hugs, kisses, and prayers – Mom Saunders

  8. I worked with Tiffany! We hadn’t seen other in several months due to the pandemic and me working remote. I just so happened to go into the call center to work For that week only about two weeks ago and what sweet soul did I get to see as I was leaving One night? Oh sweet Tiffany! I loved her mind, heart and soft spirit. We always talked and had great conversation. Her last words to me were “I’m so glad I got to see you tonight, I’ve missed you “. My words back to her were the same. I’m forever grateful for that one last conversation I got to have with her. Heaven gained a beautiful angel. You will be greatly missed. CMS will never be the same without you and your perfect soul❤️ Prayers and my sincere condolences go out to her family, friends and of course all of her CMS family Rip sweet Tiff

  9. I had heard about Tiff from my wife Ginger before I finally had the pleasure of meeting her. Although our introduction was brief, I could tell she was a good women from that one meeting.

    I’m sorry for the loss to the family, but hold fast in your hearts that she is in a better place.

    Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”

    John 11:25-26

  10. We are saddened to learn about your family loss
    God comfort us through his word the Bible and the gift of prayer.

  11. With love and sympathy, I share your heartbreak. Quianna, Serita, and Lady Myra, I love you all. Tiffany and I grew up together in church (all of us). She was forever a kind spirit and a walking comedy show. She was always a young fashion icon with plenty of herringbone chains and tennis bracelets, but most importantly, her heart was made of pure gold. After all, she came from a Queen Mother. May God give you more sunny days ahead to process this transition and may His love be enough to keep you going. I will forever hold you all in my heart.

    Love, Takysha (NY)

  12. I’m hurt I recently left Columbus in July Didn’t know she lived there My heart is heavy classmate. It’s been years since I saw her but my God. I’m in shock and I’m hurt
