It was a honor and privilege to know Tammy. She always had a big beautiful smile that matched her big beautiful personality. She always projected a deep faith in our creator and depended on him for strength and love. She demonstrated her love by giving others a kind word, or a hug. She was truly an angel on earth. My heart is saddened at her passing, but have full faith in seeing her again. Until we meet again my friend.

I remember playing basketball with Tammy at North Jackson. She was a fighter even then. She was always the first down on the floor to fight for the ball and she even bit a girl one time to get her to let go of the ball.
I also remember her coming back to go to the Jackson County football games with me after she switched to Johnson High School because she hadn't made friends there yet.
God gained a warrior when He took Tammy home. My prayers for peace go out to all of you.

Our love 💘 and prayers are with YOU ALL!
Although, I wasn't fortunate to actually meet Tam, I felt I knew her for sharing her MAMA with our sonny boy, CHRIS, and her impressive battle with cancer. If anyone could beat it, IT would've been Tam.
She was instrumental in helping others with cancer by being a guinea pig AND an inspiration to ALL of US, especially, those suffering cancer.
THANKS, Tam for being an Angel 👼 on earth. NOW, YOU'RE an Angel 👼 with JESUS. 💓💜
