Randi, Very sorry to hear about your sister,Tammi. Lost my oldest sister about 8 yrs. ago at that same age. After Mom and Dad passed away, she was our rock and inspiration. However she passed away from multiple myeloma 4 yrs later. But we have all the good.memories of her and still enjoy those. Your sister sounded like a wonderful sweet lady. Cherish the good memories. May the Lord grant her eternal rest and comfort to you and your family.
Jerry and family. I am so sorry for your loss. I went to high school with Tammy and loved her smile, laugh and sweet personality. She was a lovely lady and will be missed. Love and sympathy to all the family. Randi, I am thinking of you as well, and know how it is to lose a sister.
Jerry and family. So sorry for your loss she was such a sweet lady I will miss seeing her smile. Praying for comfort
Jerry and family
My deepest prayers and sympathies to you and your family during this beyond very difficult time and I pray for God's will to help you through this very difficult time.
Tam had the wonderful gift of hospitality. Marrying into a large family, she always made you feel special and at the same time, comfortably “at home”. She was a very sweet person, and a wonderful sister-in-law! She will be missed by all who knew her.
