How blessed I was to know both you and Noel. You both taught me how to love and really care about someone else. May you both be at peace with your son, Tony. I’m counting on you! RIP Tammy

I had the privilege of interviewing Tammy several months ago for a film on spirituality and oneness. When we sat down for the interview Tammy shared with me that she had just been told that she might have only a short time to live. I was taken by her positive and upbeat attitude, clearly the hallmark of how she lived her life. She was an inspiration to me. She will continue to be a role model for appreciation and gratitude. Our brief time together is etched in my conscience for ever . This is the true mark of greatness.

Oh, Honeybun.

I miss you terribly. I will always see your face, beautiful smile, twinkling eyes and amazing spirit. You were always kissed by God and it showed.

We shared so deeply our most private thoughts, concerns and feelings. When you had pain I could feel it. I’m so relieved that you are no longer suffering. I would have done anything in my power to take away your misery. The best I could do was be there for you and have our bed chats when you weren’t able to get up anymore.

I’ll never forget our girls’ nights, our trips to Mexico and our shopping trips. You were an excellent best friend. I love you dearly! I’m so glad you are with God and Little Tony.

For now my Sweet,

I never knew our birthdays were only 11 days apart, same year. Tammy was beautiful inside and out. Hands down the most selfless, generous, loving and kind person I’ve ever met. She was instrumental in bringing spiritual gifts into my life that have had a profound influence on me and others. I see her smile and hear her laughter as she explains her joy in heaven and how she is now unlimited by the body. Peace and love to all her family and friends. And much love from my heart to her who gave so much of hers.

When I think of Tammy I will always remember her smile and genuine concern for everyone she knew. I met Tammy when I was going through a difficult time and she helped heal my body and spirit. She was a gifted healer and insightful friend. She was always so generous to open her home and heart to me. I will miss her and know God has a special place for her in heaven. Enjoy your wings Tammy.

I was lucky enough to have Tammy and Noel as mentors to me when I was 17. They took me to Ethiopia with them and changed my life. Tammy and Noel both relentlessly told me I could do anything I wanted but that whatever I do should be in service to others. Today I am in my sixth year of teaching middle school. I would not be where I am today if not for their mentorship during my most formative years. They poured so much love into the whole Denver and Ethiopian community. I will continue to pass on the values they instilled in me to my students. I hope Tammy is having a sweet reunion with Tony and Noel in Heaven. Sending big love and much condolences to her family and others who were rouched by her beautiful soul. May a piece of her live on in each of us.

I used to live in Colorado and visited there early summer 2019. I sat with Tammy, while she was getting one of her treatments. We talked about everything under and beyond the sky.

I met Tammy in a holistic horsemanship class in 2011. It was brutally hot outside, we were sitting and waiting for our turns. She told us " Let's get some breeze going here."
We succeeded and have been friends since.

Since then we rode horses together, we worked on each other and each other's dogs and horses. I attended a painting class she hosted at Strings. I attended the Shamanic practicioner training offered by her. We visited each other homes and had breakfast or lunch together.
She knew so many people, and made each of us feel like her best friend. 

I miss Tammy terribly, simultaneously she lives in and with me through her spirit and her teachings.
