    Tammy suffered from many challenges during her brief life. She has not been well for many years. Cancer being one of the greatest.

    Tammy has been ill for some time, years. I knew she was in the hospital off and on for several months.

    May her family be at peace knowing she is no longer him pain and can rest in God’s comforting home in heaven. REST IN PEACE TAMMY!

    Aunt Tammy was so much more than words can describe. She lived life to the fullest she had. She was definitely more than an aunt, she was a best friend to her nieces and nephews. Who would do anything for us. I am going to miss you very much aunt Tammy and thank you for all the great memories. And always having my back…i love you.
