  • My condolences! How I meet Tara 8 years ago I was at multi she came in a month later. She was struggling and we had a small altercation. Well we both was punished. I was released ever since I remained sober. The day she started whirlpool, I started with her. I introduced myself and told her the story. Tara wrote a small note the next day during orientation, saying sorry and asked for forgiveness. I expected we remained friends. She said that whirlpool was her way out, and that her parents worked there and she wanted to make them proud of her. Well that happened, she succeeded in her job and enjoyed her job. She would see me sometimes during breaks and everytime she had that smile of love and inspiration. Tara will be missed. To this day I still have this note in one of my Bibles. God be with her family and may she rest in heaven!!

  • Sending my deepest condolences to the family, and my prayers go out to you. You will be missed by so many.

  • Kelly and family. So sorry. My heart aches for you. Wish there was some way to take away your pain. Praying God holds you up at this time and gives you comfort, strength and peace for these weeks, months, years to come. God bless all if you.

  • Words in a text block cannot come close to expressing the impact that Tara has had on my life, and as unfortunately brief as it was, the effect she had as the beautiful soul she was, words cannot do justice. I have thought of her often, and it saddens me to know that I no longer have the opportunity I took for granted to tell her just how highly in esteem I had and will always hold her in. Such a wonderful woman she is in my mind, because to say she was is not accurate. I will always think of her as I knew her to be. A beautiful soul, inside and out, and someone who I felt genuinely privileged to be around, regardless of how often I had that blessing. You are at peace now, my friend. I will never forget you, because you are truly an unforgettable person and my life has been enriched with every single minute I spent with you. I hope you will put in a good word for me where you are, and I look forward to seeing you again. Love always…NH

  • Kelly and family, prayers going out to all. Praying for comfort, understanding, and love. I wish there was something I could say to help you with your grief, and loss, but all I can think of is Praying For All Of You. God Bless

  • Chris and Kelly,
    Words cannot express how sorry we are for your loss. No parent should have to suffer the loss of a child. Our deepest condolences to both of you and your entire family.

  • My heart goes out to her children and parents,siblings I’ve known Tara for years and years she was such a beautiful talented young lady with a voice of an Angel when she would sing she would light up the room I’m gonna miss your pretty face and smile and you singing The man In the box by Alice n chains…till we meet again fly high baby and we all know ur smiling down at us from heaven love you chica

  • Kelly & Chris,
    Take care of yourselves and your family during the most difficult time with losing sweet Tara.
    You need to rest, recuperate, and reclaim a sense of connection after the trauma of a final goodbye. It’s never easy finding the “right” words. If it were easy, it’d be meaningless.
    Even when we don’t feel as if peace is anywhere nearby, we want to know that it can be possible.
    Love and thinking of you.

  • My heart goes out to all that knew Tara! As my heart hurts for her and to come to terms that from now on I will only have our memories…I can only believe that dhe is in heaven singing in the angels choir and she is free from earthly burdens and pain… To know that I should of hugged her a little tighter the last time I seen her… She loved so deeply ..expecially her children..she loved so much..all she wanted was to be the best mother she knew she could and to overcome the hurdles…she talked so passionately about her children..she just wanted them to be proud and to give them more … Tara is such a strong woman.. She overcame so much during life and I will hold our times together..our talks…our love for one another and her beautiful smile in my heart… For her family and all of us who knew her best, I pour out my prayers and I pray for peace and strength. I pray for understanding and comfort to be with everyone…She wouldn’t want us to cry and to be in pain..althought it is very hard to not hurt…She is with our Lord Jesus Christ and our Almighty God, who she believed in and loved… I know she is in a beautiful place…helping to watch over the ones who loved her most… I celebrate Tara’s life and I send nothing but love and prayers to all who knew and loved her like I do… Jillian Hopkins
