We were utterly shocked and dumbfounded tonite (August 2) when we stopped in to Denny's and were told of Tina's passing. It just seemed so surreal. How can one person, SO full of life be gone so quickly?
We always enjoyed having Tina be our server, and because we are regulars, she would often come over to say "hi!" and give hugs even when we weren't in her section. Such a beautiful girl, inside and out!! Our hearts ache at the loss of her in our lives, but even more for her parents and siblings who knew her so much better.
To be sure, there is an angel in heaven, laughing, giggling and flitting from cloud to cloud, bringing joy and happiness where ever she shines.
God Bless Tina and her Family in this difficult time.
Hugs - one more time -
Cindy Risen and Ed Frost / North Branch

I remember so many times about Tina. One year In high school she would always be waiting to say Hi to me my way to math class. She would be smiling and waving hi to me. My favorite part of Tina was that she was always just so happy with life and such a people person. Whenever I would see her at Dennis or anywhere in public she would always have that same charisma and smile. I was always excited to catch up with her. I am happy that Tina was apart of my life. I miss you Tina and I know that you are in a better place! My prayers go out to all Tina's family and friends. She is missed by many.
my best memories of tina is in middle school when she was is summmer school i would go with mom jean gardner and hang with tina she always made me smile.tina will be missed by me and bye all her friends.

John, Kathy,Tony, David and family,
Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this very difficult time. We are sooo sorry for your loss. Tina has left you beautiful memories of all kinds. Especially the hunting ones. She was happy and just fun to be around. If you need anything, PLEASE don't hesitate to ask. We are here for you. We love you all very much.
I went to school with Tina. However, I feel I got to know her better over the last couple of years over the internet. She was always a very kind girl that, from what I could tell, would do anything for anyone. She always spoke from the heart and will now be very missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family and close friend, I know you all will be missing her great personality!
There was never a dull moment with Tina around. She always brightened every ones day and made everyone smile when ever she was around. Tina was one in a million. she will be missed rather dearly.
I can't imagine what your going through. It just doesn't seem real. You sure can tell she was loved by everyone & hope can find some comfort in that. I know words won't help but we are so sorry for your loss!

I went to school with tina and she always came over to my house after school and hang out, watch movies.. im so sorry to tina enstads family for your loss of such pretty girl.
sorry for your loss.
I only really knew Tina from her coming in to Tim's where I worked for many years (and a few late nights at Dennys), but she was always so nice and polite. She always had nice things to say to everyone, I never heard her say anything bad about anyone. Always a smile on her face. I know my dad will miss her at Denny's for his weekend breakfast. So sorry to the Enstad family for the loss of such a bright light.
