    Dearest Carla & my long time forever friend,
    At this point, words seem to fail me. Although I feel your pain, not having lost a child, it is difficult to grasp the true depth of your grief. Tahna was such a sweet, loving, gentle, special person who easily found a place within the hearts of her family and friends. Tahna will be missed by those of us who had the pleasure of knowing and loving her.
    Keeping you & your family in our hearts & prayers.
    Much Love,
    Carol & Glendon
