Tamara, I am so sorry about your loss. Your mother sounds like a terrific person. That must be why you turned out so terrific. I was searching to contact your and came across this obituary. I too lost my mom recently (10/29/13). Let me know if you need a kind word, it would be nice to hear from you.
