We were shocked and saddened to hear of Tammy’s passing. We fondly recall our joint happiness and fun at Matt and Stacey’s wedding. We also remember the nice weekends we spent together for Jozlyn’s baby shower and Christmas 2009 when we were welcomed into your home and treated to a lovely supper. It was obvious how proud she was of her children and the great joy that Keilana and Jozlyn brought her. May you find strength in recalling the good times you had with her. Our prayers are with you at this difficult time.
