What a wonderful lady to know and be inspired by. I met Tamara at the State Fair of Ok at the Shorthorn Show. We borrowed Lexi when all of our Lassies were in the show ring showing and Lexi stepped in to help attend ring. Tamaras light will shine on through Will, her children and everyone she touched. Our prayers are with you all daily.
