                Beauty lies in the life that one has lived but a greater beauty is the hope we have in God’s promises. So with hearts filled with sadness may we remember Tamara as that smiling light, that glimmer of encouragement, that shining example of caring that touched the lives of so many and was much appreciated by all. She will long be remembered, not only by family and friends but also by God who extends His wonderful promises to all. John 5:28,29; Psalm 37:11, 29. My condolences to the family.

                                  Tamara was a very kind and loving person. I loved talking to her at the airport. I remember her helping some German tourists who didn’t speak any English. She was very helpful. The tourist came back to me and said what was that Air Canada agents name. The tourists said she was amazing. They were very thankful for her help.RIP beautiful lady.
