You gained your wings to take you away from your pain. And although your family and friends left behind will grieve the loss of your presence here on Earth with them, I know you will use those wings to allow your spirit to fly amongst them leaving love in their hearts. RIP Taz.

Linda, it may seem sad that Tazaina did not have all the years we have been granted, and we may try to conclude that she was denied a full life that those years would have yielded. But, the fact is that she packed a whole lot of life into the years she was given! I knew her as a baby, watched her graduate from school, grow to adulthood, and create her family. I listened to tales of her exploits. What a journey she had, and what an adventure she lived! My condolences go out to all who knew and loved her. - Uncle Ron

I just can't express how much I will miss you, you were one of the strongest people I know. I will miss your pictures of the farm and my favorite, the cows. You have a beautiful spirit and such an amazing heart. I love you.

I want to offer my most sincere condolences to you and your family. Sorry to hear of Tazaina's lost battle. I also offer words from a dear friend that give me some comfort when I think of them, "Mourn not a life lost; Celebrate a life lived." Once again, I am truly sorry for your loss. My prayers are with you, your mom, Karl, Doug, and the rest of your family...

i will always remember my little sister as a spunky little girl! I am thirteen years older than she is; but I had many great memories of her! Before I went into the military I spent a couple of years with her in Vermont and Florence N Y. When she was twelve she spent the summer with me entertaining my son Kyle, when I came home after work! I will regret not spending more time with her; however I wil cherise the times we did spend together! Love you Tazaina! Jeannie Schroeder
