  1. Tammy taught me that it doesn’t really matter how long we live – as long as we “Love” that we’re living! I only knew Tammy to spread joy and laughter to those that were fortunate enough to know her. What a precious, precious person to have to give back to Jesus. My sincere condolences to Eric and her family.

  2. Tammy always had a great attitude about living life on life’s terms. She was a bright spot in all of our lives. We were blessed to have her as a family member. God Bless her memory and soul.Tim and Kathleen

  3. Tammy, you fought the hard fight with the most amazing positive attitude anyone would ever witness. You were determined to beat whatever odds were thrown at you. Now spread your wings & fly my dear…no more pain. Hugs until we meet again!
