Hundreds of friends and family are expected to attend the service. Many will share memories and celebrate Tara Goad's life. “She’s so vibrant, and so fun, and just so full of life.” Kyle Heinze was her youth pastor for several years. He's giving the main message: “I know she had talked to one of her friends that one of the main things she wanted to be life, was a mom, and she was just phenomenal with kids.”
He says he’s never had to preside over a service for s young teen. “It’s a sad first for me. I’ve preached funeral services before, but they were for older people, and death’s that people see coming.” Heinze says he’ll talk about her life and will remind people that she’s now in a better place. “How she’s finally Home- with a capital “H.” Tomorrow in Prineville there's a service for Tirisa Tucker, 15, who also died in Monday’s tragic crash.
