    I want to express my sympathy for Tammy's family, I can't imagine your pain. I haven't known Tammy since she was a small child, and she was definitely such a lovable little thing back then. You'd want to just squeeze her she was so cute. Obviously she was still such a lovable young lady the way she was so thoughtful of others. I'm sure Tammy is a special angel now in her new home. God Bless her loved ones left behind to miss her.
