Tasha was joyously welcomed into her family by her mother, father and brother some 35 years ago. Soon after her arrival she suffered from a life threatening disease. God spared her life, but over her lifetime she has had to endure the struggles of her disease, the constant uprooting prevalent in a military family, and the ups and downs of her adult life. Oftentimes, she found joy and happiness in the smallest of things. During her life she showed God’s love to many people. Her infectious spirit came through and blessed her family and friends. We will all miss her.
To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.
