Tammy will be greatly missed. I went to school with Tammy, when we were at IC School I remember the year we decided to dress up for the Halloween Party as a 3 legged monster, we laughed so much that night. We had to walk sharing one boot, it was a riot but by the end of the night we got pretty good at it!! Tammy was a wonderful person and a wonderful friend. My thoughts and prayers will be with Tammy and her family, its a great loss. Goodbye Tammy, may the angels be with you. Patty
