Dear Mr. Sam Tatomir & Family, My deepest sympathies and sincere heartfelt prayers go out to you and Mrs. Tatomir at this time of loss. My memories of you and your family remain dear to me.

Dear Tatomir Family, I am so sorry to hear about Reland. She was so amazing. Reland taught both of my sons in preschool and when I would see her years later she always remembered the boys names and asked about each individually. We also shared the quilting bug, so after we got caught up on the boys' lives, we always had to discuss our latest quilting projects. Reland was such fun, so caring and kind. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Sue Kampert

I'll miss Reiland. She brought happiness to all her family and grandkids. She never missed being there every minute when she was needed for her family. I miss her at the McKay's house on Christmas Eve. She made it fun always whenever it mattered. I also miss seeing her here and running into her sometimes at the store. She will be truly missed!

Dear Tatomir Family , I'm so sorry for the loss of such a bright soul... her light will never be dim even in death When I used to clean Dan and Shannon's house once a week ,.. Reland happened to be over ... she was hanging out ...waiting for the kids to call for early dismissal pick up .. I went on my merry way and kept on cleaning .. when I went down stairs ... I noticed the couch pillows were arranged nicely and blankets folded ... Reland said " she felt bad that she was sitting around while I was cleaning so she thought to help" Thank you Reland for that thoughtful gesture ! You will forever be missed ❤️ Love, Heather McKay
