She had a soft spot for animals. She always had dogs and cats. She loved her garden, she could grow anything. She was ready to spend a day on the water, a lake, river, even a creek to skip rocks. Tara loved summer, she looked forward to riding her jet ski with wind in her hair, and a smile on her face. Please remember her that way. Tara never wanted to have a funeral service or to be buried. She will be cremated and her ashes will be scattered over the lake per her wishes. There will be no services. In lieu of flowers do an act of kindness, Bless someone in need.
