There is definitely truth to the statement the good die young. Tara was one of the sweetest, kind hearted people i've ever known. Her personality and smile would light up any room, she will be so missed. I hate that I cant make it to the viewing or funeral due to being out of town, but her friends and family with be in my thoughts and prayers this weekend and always. Jennifer Walker

So sorry for your loss. I worked with Mary at the State. Mary and Tommy were two of my favorite people. They spoke of Tara so often I felt I knew her - and as Mary would say , "Tara was the apple of their eyes." Praying for peace and comfort for Tara's family.
