My name is Jim Ortego. I am the father of David Ortego and the grandfather of Kimberly Ortego. I am so sad to hear that Tonya has passed. She was a person who knew many sorrows in life and yet maintained, at least with me, an appreciation for the gifts of living and the wonders of life. She called me in June just to say hello. We had a pleasant conversation which included going over some memories she had of her visit here in Phoenix some years ago. She recalled little things … like a lemon tree in the back yard, a drive through beautiful mountains outside Phoenix, my love of golf. She had a beautiful heart. I am not capable of grasping, much less explaining, her relationship with my son David. I recall the joy I felt the night Tonya gave birth to Kimberly and the sorrow of seeing in a hospital in Atlanta just how long the odds were against Kimberly. She was the only grandchild I have ever had. I will never know how difficult and troubling that pregnancy was for Tonya but I will always be grateful to her. She never had anything but kind, respectful and loving things to say to me and I join you in your deep sadness over her death..
