    Tammi, you will truly be missed. I’m so glad I got to recently spend time with you and hug you for the last time. I love you. Zoe will always be a part of you that I will cherish . I hope you rest easy. You always be apart of my my hearts. Until we meet again, fly high and watch over us.

  5. I met Tammi in a classroom, in Norwood Public School. She was my best friend ever since second grade. We had our ups and downs and life took us in separate directions, but we always found our way back to each other, and our friendship was stronger than ever when we did. The love was always there. I struggle with this because I am truly heartbroken. Tammi grew up in a good family, with strong family values. She loved her mother and father and her sisters very much. She was strong and independent and had the courage to speak her mind. She had a strong work ethic, which was instilled in her by her parents, and when she got older, she loved her children with all her heart and always provided for them. My heart goes out to her sisters and their families, and especially her children. Know that she loved you all so much. I love you forever my best friend.
