I doubt Tara will ever get to read this. But she should know that even through concrete walls and steel bars she made an impact on my life. I talked to her and remember watching her go from a 'sadgirl' to a 'sparkle'. I miss her and I am glad to see and read that she is doing so good for herself, that she has made the best out of a bad situation. I have no idea how to get a hold of her anymore or even where she is, but Brandon...or her mom..or her sister if you read this tell her to write her old friend in Wisconsin. She has not only touched people there, but here as well. She inspired me.
Do I feel bad for Tara? No. i am proud of her, not proud of what she did, but what she has done and continues to do with her life and faith. Stay strong and keep Sparkling Tara.
Brandon or anyone in her family that reads this tell her the next time you talk to her or visit her that even after 10 years I still pray for her and you all. God Bless you all!
