We all mourn the passing of Tina Marie (Bilezikjian) Alunni. Growing up in West Springfield, Massachusetts, she made many a trip to Wilbraham Mountain where we all got to know and love her; she brought sunshine with her wherever she went, whether the sun was shining or not. Our love and condolences to the family. May Tina rest in peace.
