Tamera was a darling girl who I enjoyed knowing in High School. My Junior year I moved into her ward and she welcomed me and became a friend. I am happy that she had a wonderful family, and a successful life. I am sorry that she died far too young.

Thank you Steve for  helping with the obituary of  Tamera,  I was not a close friend, but I remember how sweetly she treated everyone around her.  Now knowing that she battled MS and still raised a wonderful family and served actively in the Church makes her one of my heroes.  MS is one of the heaviest burdens to bare and she obviously did it with grace and dignity.

I have many memories of Tamera, we were neighbors and lived in the same ward.  I even went out with her a few times and we became good friends.  She was so cute and I loved her personality and her kindness. Her father Howard and my father served in our ward bishopric together for many years during our teen years.  I was also good friends with her older brother Blaine and am still in touch with him today.  She comes from a wonderful family and is surely missed.
