To know Tammy was to love her. She never met a stranger and had a beautiful soul inside and out. She was a loving, caring mother, gråndmother, daughter, sister, and friend. She was very free- hearted, outgoing, helpful and loving. Every time you would see Tammy, she had one of her grandchildren. She loved them with all her heart and didn’t mind expressing that to you. Tammy was not afraid to express her love for God, always keeping him first. She never told anyone bye she always said, “bye is forever, I'll see you later”. Her favorite saying to the one she loved was, “I love you more than life itself.” If she loved you, you knew it.
