Dear Sam and Family,

My deepest sympathy to all of you. Tammy was one hell of a fighter and she always made everyone smile, a few years ago she learned some Doors songs just for me. I know she’s singing on the best karoake machine ever now. She will be missed and never forgotten.

Dear Uncle Sam and family. I am so sorry it was her time to go. I am so upset that I didn’t even get to see or talk to her since I was like 8 or so. It’s like now I have an empty spot in my heart, even though she is always in there. Even though she was my step aunt, I feel as though she was my biological aunt. I was so upset to hear the news then when I found out that the surgery was supposed to keep her here longer, I got happier thinking I could talk to her. I wrote to her and all kinds of things. I got happy but still prayed. But then I found out she had two days. Tat makes me mad and makes me cry. I guess she is in a better place, but I wished she was here. I love you and miss you all.

I am very sorry I was just told about Tammy. She was beautiful. I hope everyone is doing well, under the circumstances probably not. I was in shock, no one even told me she was sick. I am very sorry I did not get a chance to see her again before death. She is in heaven looking down on all of you now, your guardian angel.

Take care

My heart is broken, I did not know of Tammy’s battle before yesterday. I am sorry for taking for granted my friendship and not keeping in touch, she was a wonderful friend to me. Tammy’s smile was infectious. You were her best friend after 5 minutes with her. I will keep her in my heart, she was one of the kindest souls I have known. I will keep her family in my prayers…always. I know Tammy is now singing in Heaven with her beautiful voice and lighting the skies with her beautiful eyes and smile.

Sam,

I can’t even begin to know how you must feel, but please know, that you and the kids are in my thoughts and prayers. I wish that I could come up to Wellsville more often and see people when I come up, but it seems to consume me being with my mother, as she hasn’t been well ever since my father died in 2002.

I came to church on Palm Sunday, and saw you and your mother going to communion, but I wasn’t able to catch you after church.

Sam.. my thought and prayers are with you all.
