You knew intimate the gift of her life. May God touch your innermost being that you might hold to the gift Tamara remains to you. May Jesus live with you in your terrible loss. We stand with you in these days. May the Lord bless you and keep you. David Lichter, Executive Director, NACC

I will alway remember her beautiful smile from all the years growing up and swimming in the pools and riding bikes around Sonoma and Alameda. She always liked my red bike and was one of the first kids to get the first 10 speed bike. Then when we got to ride the buses to High school she made me feel better and showed me around MHS since she was like an older sister. Fond memories of our childhood and early adolescence May she live in in everyone's eternal rhythm of our hearts and souls.
