Todd, my sister , Chris Krawczyk, and I were talking about Tanya today and how she always made our Mom happy , when she would bring your girls to visit . Anna and Maura brought her light and happiness and we wanted you to know that. We never really got to know Tanya, but in my heart, I know our Mom was waiting for Tanya to welcome her home .

Always enjoyed her class in high school. Ms. Aston always was kind enough to offer advice when ever one needed it. She will be certainly missed by her former students.
