I'm so sad to hear of Tama's passing. The times, life, memories and faith we shared as youth are such a precious part of my life.  Her sweet spirit, quick dimpled smile and loving heart will not be forgotten.  Prayers for you and your family dear friend.  God bless and keep her near you now as you always have in life.  Janet

I am so sorry to hear the news about Tama. I assist her in preparing a stage set for one of the pageants at school and she was so sweet.  My God held her in the palm of his hand.  I will keep Tama and her family in my Prayers.
