I am sorry for the loss of Tammy. She was a "real" type person and always seemed to want to help. I enjoyed every conversation we had as few as they were. She was a well met friend, and she will be missed.

Tammy was one of my favorite cousins. She was my first art teacher and she was with me a lot growing up and I will miss her very much. She was one of the strongest people that I knew and I learned so much. I will cherish all my memories of her always. She lived with us for a while to help my mom out while she was in school and on the weekends she would make us (me and my brother James) caramel corn and we would watch movies till we fell asleep :) or mom got home. she would even dance with us to john cougar meloncamp. just so many memories. Love you always and miss you always oxoxoxoxox
