It has happened again. Another Mississinewa High School Class of 2001 graduate has died. Tiara Shepperd died in an accident on August 20, 2020 according to reports.

My memories of Tiara are good. The last time I spoke to Tiara was before I auditioned for American Idol in Pittsburgh while at Homeland Mission in Marion. She was a loyal friend to many like other Mississinewa High School Class of 2001 alums, including myself.

Samantha, Tiffani, and my thoughts and prayers are with Tiara’s husband, Andrew, and her daughter, Deja.

According to her husband, Tiara’s funeral will be at 4:00 pm August 27, 2020. I would love to attend, but due to starting the first week at IVY Tech, I will not be able to do so.
