I was very sad to hear of Tammy's passing. We went to school together and I hate that we had not seen each other in a while. I hope that she has found peace and that you as her family get the justice that she deserves. Your family will be in my thoughts and prayers as you go through this difficult time.

My condolences go out to the family and friends of Tammy. She called me just 2 days before she was murdered and I wish I had of spent more time talking with her.We had been talking a lot for months before she was killed. Even though we would go months without talking I never considered her anything less than my friend. No matter what went on I never forgot Tammy and how she was friends with me. I remember one time she was holding Mj (my youngest daughter) up in the air above her head playing with her in Lowes Foods (where Freds is now, in Whitnel) and I said "Tammy , she just ate her bottle and tammy laughed and kept putting her up higher and higher, well you can guess what happened.. Mj threw up all over Tammy, down her shirt and all over her.. she started gagging and ran outside with me following and she just tossed off her shirt in the parking lot..it was so funny and so tammy.. these guys were looking over at her while she was trying to find a shirt in my car to put on and they were whistling and stuff and she just tossed her shirt with all the baby puke on it in their car.. I rolled and then so did she we were laughing so hard. I will always remember Tammy as one of the sweetest girls I have ever known and she did not deserve to leave us the way she did. Please accept my very deepest sympathy and apologies cause it took me so long to write this but I have not been taking her death very well myself. I really did think the world of her. God Bless you all and may the Lord grant you comfort in your time of grief.
