Tamara will always be remembered as a joyous soul.  Her smile could light up an entire room.  Her laughter was so contagious that she could change the atmosphere anywhere.  She had a strong love for music and the right song could create a kinetic energy to all she encountered.  Tamara will always be remembered as the strongest of the group.  Her challenges never stopped her.  The bond shared with her nieces and nephews was unbreakable and unstoppable but most of all, cherished.

She leaves to cherish her memories:  her mother, Percresa of the home; one brother, James (Sheral) of Hampton, VA; three sisters, Kalia (Robert) of Tar Heel, NC, Gretchen (Antonio) of Hope Mills, NC and DeCarla (Tawan) of Salisbury, NC; eleven nieces and nephews, Tiara, Ellania, Dallaz, DWayne, TaShawn, Damond, Donavon, Dawan, Addison, Nevaeh and Caleb; Aunt Myra; and a host of aunts, uncles, other relatives and friends.
