It is close to impossible to start this "story". Tonight; December 31, 2018 my little cousin Tamara was tragically taken from all of our lives. Tamara was so incredibly beautiful, smart, courageous and an absolute light in this dreadfully dark world. She was just 18 years old, a mother to a beautiful baby boy and had her whole life ahead of her. Like many young people now days, Tamara caught on to the YouTube sensation and she instantly became someone that people caught on to. Her smile, her laugh, her personality was something that many found hard to ignore. She took a rough childhood and turned it into the very best life for her and her son that she possibly could. Needless to say, being independent was an understatement. Once she set her mind to something, there was nothing and no one that was going to stop her and get in her way. Tamara was fearless and determined and we lost a beautiful soul tonight. Tamara was shot at an event that she was hosting for New Years Eve, after a fight erupted. Nothing can ever prepare anyone for something like this. She was killed out of state, in Texas. However, her home is in Arizona. Our first priority is to bring our cousin back home to her mother in Arizona. From there, we can then begin to lay her to rest. Our family does not have much and we are asking for any amount that you are able to donate. These funds will be going towards transporting her body home, funeral/memorial expenses, as well as getting her older sister to Arizona in order for her to be at her little sisters funeral. Tamara was extremely loved, therefore you may see a second GoFundMe page for her organized by someone else. We are so blessed to have such an incredible support system and so many wonderful people that are already lending a helping hand. I would just like to thank you all very much in advance for taking the time to at least read this, send a prayer our way, share this, or even donate. You’ll see we raised the price of goal as we gathered more information, we learned exactly how much we would need to transport her and lay her to rest. Again, thank you so much for those who have already given what they could. You have no idea how much we appreciate this.
