    Such a sweet, loving brat! From the first time I met you when you were a Freshman in High School to decades later at the 1986 reunion in 2011, you had the same twinkle in your eye! Your family and inner circle of friends was kept dear to your heart.

    My deepest condolences to the family and friends for our loss. Make this a “Celebration of life” Tara would have wanted it that way. (Cut & paste for our Shooting Star)

    “Eternal rest, grant unto them O Lord,
    and let perpetual light shine upon them.
    May her soul and the souls of all the faithful departed,
    through the mercy of God, rest in peace.”

    Riverside Mike

      My dear friend. I am so sorry to hear your battle is over. I am glad we reconnected and your bubbly personality was as glowing as ever. I have been sick and out of touch . I will miss your smile and mischievous actions. I know you are looking down and watching over all of us that you touched in your too short time here. Thank you for being a bright light in my life.

    Tara was the strongest woman I’ve ever met. I looked up to her in more ways than one. She was a good friend to me and will never be forgotten. I miss her already. My condolences and prayers go out to her family.

    My heart is heavy, I’m so glad your not suffering anymore though! We had so many laughs, so many corvette rides and talking to Bob! You are my only co-pilot on my race track course that enjoyed the curves and speed as much as me! Forever in my heart….😥
