Even Though I was only five years old when I met Tamara for the first time, my memories are so vivid.
What impacted me the most though were her eyes. They were enormous piercing aqua blue eyes, lined with a thin black liner that created a dramatic look. Those eyes were wise, smart, determined and they had seen so many things I could not even imagine or understand at my tender age. They had an intensity I had never seen before. She looked at me with those eyes; there was a stremght but also a tenderness in them. She said, “you can call me Cherie” and opened her arms.
