Having to come to terms with this loss has been tremendously difficult for me. Tomara is not only my friend, but her and Zoë have become family to us. My daughter and I will not be the same without them! From the very first time Tomara and I met we instantly formed a friendship. I am great full I have been able to help her with Zoë and I honor the bond that her and my daughter have. I am saddened by the short amount of time I've had with Tomara in my life but, I am beyond blessed to say that she was apart of my life. Tomara, keep shining. Our world is definitely dimmer without you in it, but I find peace in knowing that you're watching us. Rest easy my Angel. Love Teh

Tomara was our favorite neighbor! Her and her father were there first people to acknowledge and welcome us to our new neighborhood. I cherished watching my son play with Zoe while Tomara and I talked and laughed. She was always smiling and her voice was always warm and welcoming..Although we are sad, I am so incredibly grateful for the short time I got to know her..I will sincerely miss her and this world is not as warm without her presence.
