She had such a love for animals and was so happy to finally be able to own her own dogs, Cody and Colby. These dogs were her pride and joy and brought her so much happiness each day. She loved playing with them, taking walks, attending training classes and sharing stories about them. Just like a parent the photos and video’s on Facebook showed how proud she was of her dogs.
Tiana made many trips back down to Orange County on the weekends to spend time with family. She had such special relationship’s with her nieces and nephew. They will always have the memories of her playing games, road trips, amusement parks, sleepovers, all the sporting games she watched them play and so many other things they did together.
