Sorry to hear about Tamara's passing. I want to express my condolences to you Michael and your family.

I had the privilege to know Tamara in a professional capacity for over twenty years. Every time I saw or spoke with Tamara she was so warm, I felt like I was talking to a close personal friend. My heart goes out to her family and all who knew and loved her. The world is certainly less bright without her presence.

Tamara was such a warm and caring person. Whenever I see someone knitting, I am sweetly reminded of Tamara. I am so grateful our paths crossed at Gray Plant Mooty.

Words do not convey my deep sorrow for you all. Tamara was a FABULOUS women! I am glad I had the privilege to know her, even thought it was such a short time and now so long ago. But she is/was a memorable women!!!! God's blessings on you all!

Yesterday I pulled out the Olsen family's photo Christmas card taken in March 2010 in Puerto Vallarta. It is a lovely photo which we will frame. It is the perfect photo
In which to
honor and remember Tami. Blessings and His peace to all.

Michael, I am so sorry about Tamara's untimely death. Our paths have not crossed since your time at Blake about twenty years ago. I hope it helps in some small way to know that you, Corbin and Johanna are in my thoughts during this difficult time. My heartfelt sympathy and love,

~Nancy Danielson, Wayzata, Minnesota

My sympathies to Tamara's family. I knew the Hjelle family when I was a child growing up on 13th Street South in Moorhead and played with Tami. Sorry for your loss.
