Comfort, Grace and Peace to you all. We love you. Hold close all the precious memories of your beautiful Tamika.

  28. My deepest condolences to the family. I only knew her from work but she was a great person to be around. I was shocked & devastated when I found out so can only imagine how the family feels. Sending nothing but prayers & good vibes to all those who know her. Even as I type this I’m still in disbelief. I know we will not understand when & why God calls home when he does; but know just that.. shes home. Also although tragic as this may be; if she was here, she was gonna tell a joke.. if nothing else to try to make you feel better. Let’s try to remember all those times she made us laugh during this trying time. I love you all & God Bless
