Baby you’re truly a Legend. Ti’azha was always the life of the party and usually the loudest too. Ti’azha meant and means everything to us.
Ti’azha had a different voice,a little raspy, but it was so unique. She always had everyone laughing, not just any laugh, she would have your stomach hurting, tears rolling from some of the things she would say. All we all could do was laugh and say “Ti’azha”. She was outspoken and didn’t play any games,but loved so many people. She showed up and supported everyone. Ti’azha would cuss you out, but still give you a ride home or let you stay overnight, whatever the request or need was she would help. She wanted the best for everyone. She wanted the very best for her two girls. She gave them all of her plus more. She will be forever missed. We love you Ti’azha.
