“Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.” – Mother Teresa 

 

Tina Anderson lived by this quote. If you met Tina, or were ever in her presence, then you will agree that she radiated love and happiness to all around her.

 

An advocate for those less fortunate, Tina made it a point to give back selflessly and serve others with compassion, grace and dignity.

 

On two different occasions Tina served on our Board of Directors. First, in the early 1980s and then again from July of 2004 through June of 2010.

 

Tina and her husband Bill, along with another generous local couple, made the first gifts to establish Volunteers of America North Louisiana’s Endowment Fund.

 

“This community has been so good to our family,” she shared. “It only increased our joy to be able to give something back to the next generations.”

 

When asked why she chose to give back so generously, Tina shared, “Nobody can predict what the future will bring, but we’ve received so many blessings. This is a great way to pass them along.”

 

We will miss our dear friend. May she rest in peace.
