Tamara Kim Bumgarner Hook

"Live Well, Love Much, Laugh Often!"

I, Tamara Kim Bumgarner Hook was born April 3, 1962 to Robert H. Bumgarner Jr. & Lexie May Updyke Bumgarner. My parents later divorced and both got remarried.I married my high school friend, Russell Layne Hook on June 18, 1981 (later divorced after 23 years of marriage). Together we have two wonderful sons Tyler Layne Hook and Chase Ryan Hook. Both have brought my life utter joy and a sense of purpose. My favorite things in this life have been my boys, fireworks, dolphins, family, the ocean and a good movie (I was always up for a good movie). This life has been an adventure now it is time to rest.

I leave behind my beautiful sons, Tyler (his wife Shannon) and Chase. Family; mother; Lexie Spencer, step-father; Spence, stepmother; Donna Bumgarner, brothers; Steve, Keven, Robbie, sister; Tawnya, grandmother Mabel Bumgarner and extended family (too many to name each). My best friends Jeff (Gabe), Shelly, Lynn and so many people that have made me smile during the journey. Thank you.

A special thanks to my ex-in-laws who put up with me for so many years. I never stopped caring about you and I missed having you in my life. My family for allowing me back into their lives with open arms and unconditional love. To all of you whom I love so much, smile be happy and don't let anger win.

Always seize an opportunity to say I love you! Now it is time for me to meet my father and start a new adventure remember there is no day like today.

I love you all!
