Tammy was an amazing daughter, wife, mother, sister, aunt, cousin and
friend to all she met. She was an adventurous, feisty, fun loving, and caring
young lady, with a very infectious smile! Tammy lived for her children and
to be present at all of their extra -curricular activities and to cheer them on
to victory. She leaves behind a wonderful legacy and a great example for
all of us to follow as she fought a very difficult battle the last few years of
her life, but did not allow that battle to keep her down, but rather she
always rose above every occasion even until her final days.
