Our son and Tammy started archery lessons together. Our friendship has continued since that first encounter. Our son was a very outgoing person and had many as I called them "other mothers." Tammy was one such person. When planning the wedding she and I both laughed and said there should be a row for all the "other mothers" attending. When Tammy switched to a Compound Bow, I bought her Recurve Bow which I still have. When our son's college formal class ring ceremony was to take place I brought up the dress I was going to wear so she could see it. She asked what type of necklace I was going to wear and she offered to let me borrow one of hers. I didn't because I would have been so afraid of losing it but her offer was an amazing one. There are a lot of things I don't know about Tammy, but what I do know she did amazing things in her life despite everything that happened to her. Being an rock Indian in Ramona, loving to decorate for Halloween and Christmas, a lover of cats, a proud Grandmother and Great Grandmother, a wife and cooking partner. One heck of a pistol or rifle shot. We talked almost every evening for the last few years. I telling her what I did that day, about any tournaments I competed in. Tammy worried about me when I traveled to tournaments and on vacation trips. Tammy would be the first person I called when I got home. I in turn would hear what was going on with her. Shopping at Hobby Lobby, the new Physical therapist, Going for a ride and getting out. Telling me how many steps and how far she walked. Talking about Hot rod and Opie and what they were up to. She would tell me how her kids were and how the grandkids were doing. lately we wouldn't talk as long because her voice was being tempermental. I miss our evening chats Tammy Skalski, Love you Bunches forever

We’ve know Tammy and Stan for over 16 years when my dad bought the lot in front of their house and built our home. Tammy and Stan were heaven sent since day one! They befriended us and won my sister and I over when Tammy sent over a box of creamsicles. That did it! That was the start of a wonderful and long lasting friendship that turned us into family. My mom would send her pozole, one of her home cooked meals, and Tammy was always excited to be our taster (and Stan if Tammy let him have some!). She always gave the best Halloween candy, and as we got older, she continued showering us with love and affection. Tammy had a way of making you feel like the most beautiful and special person in the world. And the love she had for Stan, her children, and her grandchildren was immense and infinite. Every morning, we’d hear Stan send Tammy his “bye love you!” honk as he drove away. What they had is what every couple dreams of having. As we got older, we didn’t visit as often but what she meant to us never changed. And it never will. We love them dearly and will always hold a special place in our heart.

I met Tammy over 20 years ago when we moved across the street from her and Stan. She told us she knew we were good people because we owned American made cars. We became close friends which included having barbecues together, going to Tuxie's and classic car shows and attending each other's family celebrations. She always spoiled me at Christmas and my birthday, including making me my favorite coconut cream cake. Our friendship wasn't as close in the recent years but she always had a special place in my heart. I am so sorry for Stan, her children, grandchildren and the rest of her loved ones. She truly loved Stan and Stan loved her as well. Stan was always there to take care of her and was a strong health care advocate for his beloved wife. Tammy will truly be missed by myself and all of her friends in the Riverside community.
