Convoy friend, sister in christ

When I first met Tammy I was in awe at how she lit up a room. Her smile and happiness was beyond genuine. I’ve read and reread every letter she has sent me. I adored Tammy and was so looking forward to our time again at the convoy. I will cherish the letters, keepsakes, and memories shared. I learned more from her than she may have ever realized. I dropped to my knees in tears when I was told god called her home. But I also weep with joy in knowing she is dancing in heaven awaiting our reunion. God bless this family and keep them during these horribly sad times. I cannot imagine losing someone with as much love and happiness to give as Tammy. My prayers are with you all. With love, may god truly bless.

Words can't Express how much I will miss Tammy or how very dear she was, and always will be, to me. How many people are lucky enough to be born already having a best friend? From Barbies to Boys to enjoying adulthood Tammy was always a bright shining light in my life. Which makes sense given her love of everything bling. Little did she know, there really wasn't anything in this world more dazzling than her beautiful, effervescent, contagious smile.

I often thought of Tammy. She always had a smile and a hug. I'll always remember that she always introduced me to others as her best friend ever. She held a special place in my heart as well as my husband, Lynn's. Every time I bake banana bread I will think of her. She will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Tammy you made us all happy and made us smile. You brightened our days. You went beyond special and showed us all what true courage was. You gave us all great memories for which this friend will always be grateful. You had a wonderful trip with your earthly venture and the hugs from you that I received at so many sporting events are cherished. Now another great trip for you to bring joy, brightness, warmth, and kindness to all your new friends and I know that they will appreciate you too. We'll miss you, but man did you show us all many things that we all can use in our own lives. Thanks for being a friend!!

Pat and family. I have no words that can begin to say how truly sorry I am about our loss of Tammy. I. Cherish the times that we as kids would come to your house. Seemed like daily that Mom would be there and we would get off the bus there to play. Then we would go to the little store and get our candy and pop. I remember the building behind your house that Kim and us would play in and Tim and Randy would be out riding their bicycles. Tammy was one in a million. She loved everyone. She had no dislike of anybody or anything. Your entire family played a huge part of my childhood and I thankyou for those memories. Tammy will be greatly missed but knowing she is in heaven with "Grandma Bev" is very comforting to me and hope it brings comfort to all of you. My prayers are with you all . I am so sorry that I will be unable to attend the servives bit I will be there in Spirit.((((Hugs))))
