Steph, Jay, Mandy, Veronica & family:

I am so sorry for the loss of your Mom and Sister. Being Steph’s friend over the last 10+ years we have so many beautiful memories together and many of those include Tammy. Tammy was always front and center for anything and everything involving her two kids, nieces and nephews. She was always so welcoming, and her wit and humor had a room laughing in an instant. She will be deeply missed by so many.

Sending all of my love and strength to your entire family.

Tammy has been an integral part of a strong team at Molina Healthcare for the last 6+ years. She was a pleasure to work with and it was a privilege to call her “friend”. Her wit and enthusiasm was infectious and she kept our team laughing with her funny stories. Also, even though none of us have ever met Stephanie or Jay, we feel as though we know them. We are deeply saddened by her passing and want to express our deepest sympathy to her loved ones.
