My baby sister
Never in my life did I think you would not be here with me watching Taylor grow up... I had pictured you in our lives forever... I'm not going to lie I don't Even know how to process this... my mind my heart my soul my everything disappeared the day you left us... I just try to make it through a second at a time on certain days... I'm never going to be complete since you and mommy are now gone but I have to be strong for my Little girl and provide a good life for her. It's hard for me because I feel so alone you and mommy were my everything... I still have daddy and Taylor to take care of... and I will try to do the best I can without you here...
you will always hold the other half of my heart that is now missing from me...
I love you my baby sis may you RIP with mommy and enjoy heaven...
send me some pennies so I know your close...
love you always
Your big sis ANG

Tara was my next door neighbor. She was a beautiful, gentle human being, full of compassion for others. Anything you asked of Tara, she would do for you. She helped me with learning smart phone skills, prayed for me and my sick mom, and opened her heart to me when I was down and out. She understood. She encouraged me. I will miss her. Rest in peace. Lots of love to you. We'll meet again. Thank you Tara for everything.
