"Assisting people in re-gaining hope and a better way of life."

Saturday afternoon several people met at The Family Inn to say goodbye and happy retirement to Tina Fleming. She had been the manager at the motel for almost 10 years. With her firm, yet sweet and compassionate personality, she has been a blessing at the motel for many patrons, including those who are homeless. Often she would "give them a break" by waiting for their next paycheck to pay, help them with a ride to the local food ministry and on a few occasions lend them money when in need.

Tina had been a blessing to us in many ways. When we couldn't find lodging for somebody, she would give us a discount rate on a weekly room. She was the only motel, that at Christmas time assisted us in a food drive, by placing a box in the lobby for goods to be donated. She, out of her own pocket, would donate money to us from time to time. And so much more.

It is sad to see her retire, but she has to for medical reasons. But now she can free herself from the working stress and focus her time on her 2 children, her cat, a golden retriever and soon Chrissy (on of our pups.)Her services and kind heart will be greatly missed in Williamsburg.
