    Default Tana's Place

    A very fitting name for a place for us all to get together and make plans to mingle.

    Thank you Linda for being so kind and helpful to me when I knew no one and knew so little about posting and such.

    I miss you...

    A heartfelt and classy touch. I never knew Tana, I started at the TOMB too late, but I feel like I know her a little bit from the tributes I saw on the TOMB. And now naming the meetup/tailgating/tribute/memorial board for her does make this place feel like "ours", the TOMB posters', instead of just another Titans forum.

    Like Titans and Turtles, I didn't find the TOMB in time to have the pleasure of meeting Tana. Those of you that I have met have made sure that her memory lives on.

    There is no more appropriately named forum on this board.

    Same here. This just goes to prove that the TOMB and now TT is more than just a message board, it's a family

    If you all only knew what you missed. The TOMB changed the day she died and never was the same. I hope we can instill some of her faith and friendship to fellow NFL fans and the way she did.

    My thoughts exactly.

    Perfect name for this forum.
    Part of you was part of him, and will be forever. You're in both worlds, and that makes you special.

    This is perfect. I still miss her, she always found the good in whatever situation was going on. I still have her number programed in my phone, I have started to delete it several times but said it wasn't hurting anything and left it.

    I miss her very much, she and I are the biggest Homers when it comes to our Titans, and very proud of it!
    Make it a great day!

    The one and only time I got a chance to meet Linda was fittingly enough, at a tailgate. It was the scrimmage picnic/tailgate prior to hosting the Dolphins in a scrimmage game at the then Coliseum. I had tickets with my dad and his wife but Linda insisted that I use one of her tickets that she wasn't using and sit with them, to be closer to the playing field.

    During the scrimmage there was the threat of rain and Linda disappeared for a bit, only to come back with a rain poncho for her, myself, and the other person sitting with us. Yet another act of kindness and generosity from someone I'd only met just a couple hours before.

    That's my lasting image of Linda - helping others.

    I joined the TOMB right before her passing so I never got to meet her. But from all I hear about her, she seemed to be a great person to have around and a great Titans fan.

    I was lucky to start tailgating when she was around for at least a couple of years. She was one of the first people at the tailgate to greet me, and she was one of the kindest people I knew in the group.

    Not long before she passed away, she told me about her trip to a road game in California. She got to fly up on the team plane and meet the players, Mike Keith, and Wycheck. It sounded like an awesome experience.

    I still remember her funeral. All of her Titans jerseys were hanging by her casket, her scrapbook with tons of pictures and autographs weas in the reception area, and a book with all of the posts from her passing away thread were printed out for visitors to read. It was the ultimate Titans fan funeral.

    She was a very special woman.

    I still have a tribute that John McClain did somewhere on my computer. I'll see if I can find it and post it somewhere.

    I also did not get to meet Linda. I moved to Nashville the July following her death. At that time, I hadn't known a soul before moving here. I remember looking on the TOMB, and the regulars were mentioning that it would be great if some "new blood" came to the preseason opening tailgate.

    ForRealTitansFan was the first person that I bought a ticket from. I was fortunate to also meet Yvette, TitanPop, Jones31, MikeMcFan, and a few others whose names escape me at this time. Your friendliness and generosity to a complete stranger looking to meet some people and start his life over will never be forgotten.

    Linda may be gone in physical being, but those of you who knew her have carried on her spirit. I too feel as if I somehow knew her. If she could see what has transpired since her passing, I'm sure she would give you all a stamp of approval. Thanks again my good friends!

    Try this out and let me know if you can download it. You'll have to look down the page a bit until you see a Download File button. It's centered on the page underneath a couple ads. It's an MP3, about 1MB in size. There's no virus in it, if anyone is worried about that.
