Tara, it has been 11 years since you left us. Today is a bitter sweet day for me... You left on the same day as my wedding anniversary. My wife and I have been married 31 years today. We keep your memory alive each year. I know nothing on this earth can compare with the joy you experience every day with the Lord Jesus. For that I am envious. We miss you and will never forget
