Psalm 91(NLT) 1 Those who live in the shelter of the Most High
will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 This I declare about the LORD:
He alone is my refuge, my place of safety;
he is my God, and I trust him.
3 For he will rescue you from every trap
and protect you from deadly disease.
4 He will cover you with his feathers.
He will shelter you with his wings.
His faithful promises are your armor and protection.
5 Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night,
nor the arrow that flies in the day.
6 Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness,
nor the disaster that strikes at midday.
7 Though a thousand fall at your side,
though ten thousand are dying around you,
these evils will not touch you.
8 Just open your eyes,
and see how the wicked are punished.
9 If you make the LORD your refuge,
if you make the Most High your shelter,
10 no evil will conquer you;
no plague will come near your home.
11 For he will order his angels
to protect you wherever you go.
12 They will hold you up with their hands
so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone.
13 You will trample upon lions and cobras;
you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet!
14 The LORD says, “I will rescue those who love me.
I will protect those who trust in my name.
15 When they call on me, I will answer;
I will be with them in trouble.
I will rescue and honor them.
16 I will reward them with a long life
and give them my salvation.”

I never met my aunt Tamara in person, but I Skyped with her numerous times. She was a beautiful lady in the inside and out. Full of love for her savior Jesus Christ. I look forward to meeting her in heaven. Thank you William for providing her a home to live in her last years. God bless you!

Love, Sherril Williams

What bittersweet news to hear of the passing of this international beauty that we were privileged enough to call our friend. I am sure that her heart was torn between eternity with her loves and remaining near her grandchildren, of whom she was so incredibly proud.

Meagan, Annika and Tanner Buckaway: you were the culmination of everything that she treasured in this world. The many prayers that she prayed for you will most certainly follow you throughout your entire blessed future. In her loving memory…xoxo

Praying for comfort to all that knew and loved her. I grew up from in Australia from 2 years old knowing the Clark family and was married to Alick Clark who now is in heaven. So the reunion with her children and the family will be so awesome and she had such a beautiful voice that she used for the work of the Lord. So may the Lord hold and comfort her family until we all meet again in heaven.
