Dear Famiy of Tamara,
I am so sorry for your tragic loss.
We may wonder why? or if their is anything to look forward to?
Jesus well knew the Bible statement:" Time and unforeseen occurrence befall them all"[Ecclesiastes 9:11]. He knew that
sometimes bad things just happen.
The wonderful future resurrection hope is the promise found at John 5:28,29.
Revelation 21:3,4 states that death will be no more. and pain
will be no more, the former things will have passed away.
Our Creator, Jehovah God, by means of his son Jesus, is going to undo the tragedies that touch our lives today.
Dianne Mullins

Jacob,& family, I am so sorry to hear about the loss of Tamara. She was such a sweet & loving young lady. I loved working with her at Walmart. I know she will be greatly missed.

so, so sorry for your loss. I remember Tamara in the youth group at country acres, Ricky and I were sponsors for a trip. I remember her sweet voice and cheery attitude. You could see her love of the Lord shining out. She seeked out the hurting or shy kids and pulled them in. She will be missed and she will be remembered with a smile :)
