    I am stunned and so very sad for you and your family, Tamara. Your joy with Calvin was delightful and inspiring.

    What a strong woman you are. And, that strength will serve you well in the days, weeks and years ahead. I'm glad you have such a good support system around you, and, especially, that your sister will be living with you. And, I'm glad that it appears that, as well as being strong, you are wise enough to accept the support that is offered to you.

    Bless you, Tamara. My thoughts and prayers, as well as those of countless others, will be with you.

    This trajedy crosses my mind from time to time throughout the days and all I can say is that it is just so wrong.

    Tamara & family:
    Please believe I will have you in my mind & heart on Thursday.

    And I hope this can bring a smile - I was reminded when you related your casket-shopping experience:

    My husband was cremated (it was his wish) and I picked out an urn to be engraved.
    When I arrived for the memorial service the funeral director took me aside.

    "I have some bad news" he told me.

    I wondered what could possibly be considered "bad news" to me that day.

    Turned out the engraved urn had not arrived in time for the service.
    Looking around his office, filled with sample urns, I asked if we could use one of those and he agreed we could.

    That did make me smile.
    Tom - as was his habit in Life - was late for his own funeral.

    I've been off COTH for a while and just saw this. My deepest condolences to you, your family and friends.

    I always wish people strength and courage in facing a loss, but you have demonstrated that you already have both in spades. My thoughts are with you.

    Default Faith

    Tamara's faith and the love of those around her are giving her a strength few of us possess, even when tested. Steel, covered in velvet, wrapped in leather with a loving heart and an abiding faith, that has not once, railed against God for the unfairness of it all.

    Though learning life from a good man of faith, strength and compassion, it is her children who will have the most difficult time. I went through this with my son when his father died just before he turned 18. Though he was raised in the church, his paternal grandparents were elders, they were so devastated, they didn't provide the emotional support he needed from them.

    Each milestone for the children will be hard, but Tamara, we'll all do all we can to help ease the pain as much as we can.

    May God Bless you with peace and prosperity both now and in the future.

    Just one day at a time, sometimes, just one hour at a time.

    You can do it.

    I have been away and just saw this now. Sending love and hugs from PA - and would like to say that as I was awed by your love for Calvin, I am awed by your strength.

    I went to town today.Everyone,everywhere without fail, stopped to give maria and I their love and embraces and tears.We could go no where w/o someone speaking to us in love, with love and kindness.These are the gifts of the Creator to us.This was the image we were made in.Not anger nor wrath nor malice nor hatred.The love of simply country people for one another. I will not concern myself with the dark side and it's works. It suffocates rightly in this place in this little town on this mountain.

    Tamara

    You are such an inspiration. Of how true love and faith can lead us in life. I am in awe.

    You, and your family are in my thoughts. I will continue to ask for peace and strength to you and your loved ones, although it is obvious you are full of strength and love.

    Again, so very very sorry this happened to your family. A horrible thing happened, and you continue to gift us with your incredible strength and wisdom.

    Thank you for sharing with us.

    My deepest condolences to you and your family, Tamara. I haven't had much direct interaction on here with you and also don't know you IRL, but I have followed this thread and have found myself thinking of you and your girls quite often over the last couple of days. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
