Our thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family.

From the time we met Tami, David and Ian, they treated us like long standing friends. Tami was always so caring and made sure we always had snacks to eat when we would come to their place at the lake to visit. Tami was always such a great hostess! Tami is always helpful, fun and giving. She treated our daughter like her own.

There are so many special memories, but one that stands out to share. Tami had at her place my surprise 50 birthday party. My sister, Jeannine and her were busy decorating with not so pretty pictures of me and I can just picture Tami and Jeannine laughing during that whole time. I think they really enjoyed making the diaper they made wear any my ugly picture on the stool lid. Tami had her place so decorated and it was very generous of her hospitality. Lots of laughs and had such a good time.

We enjoyed so many beautiful nights on their deck talking, dancing, on boat rides and just hanging out. Tami was full of life, her smile was bright and loved her laugh.

We will always treasure the memories we have had and Heaven is sure getting a great angel.

Love, Lynn Barrett

What a wonderful legacy video of Tami and her life. She seemed very vibrant, carefree, friendly and all round lovely person. We are neighbors and I've watched her as a wife, mother and mutual dog lover. I wasn't surprised that she wants donations to the ARL.

This will be tough for family and friends. Yes she will be missed.

I will miss her smiling face. She brought me gifts and dinners, as well as bringing Ian for piano lessons for a lot of years. She always had a smile and a hug. I send loving and healing thoughts to all the family, especially David and Ian.

"Only an aunt can give hugs like a mother, keep secrets like a sister, and share love like a friend."

My aunt did all of these things for me, and I am so blessed and grateful for the 32 years of memories I got to share with her.

She told the best stories, always made sure I remembered my dad and supported me in everything I did.

Spending weekends with her and my grandma will forever be the best memories I will have, and I cherish them now more than ever.

Love ya, Aunt Tam

Tami was larger than life, I not only lost a sister in law but I lost a great friend. Tami was a fantastic mother to my nephew and wife to my brother. I have so many great memories from over the years.
May you rest in peace and until we meet again you will be greatly missed.

Tami blessed us with her style, flare, laughter and love. She was genuinely kind and caring. I will treasure the memories of her laughter, hosting family get-togethers, memories at the lake, and her love for family.

She was truly a devoted mother to Ian. She loved him beyond words.

Tami, I am positive you will make your place in heaven with determination, grace, and bling. I can’t wait to see what you have accomplished when I get there.

Love you bunches.

There are not enough words to explain how much I love Tami. She was one of the BEST aunts that ever existed. Our inside jokes, embarrassing moments, shared secrets and tears will always be in my heart. We could go from talking about the most random things to having a deep conversation about life in a matter of seconds, and then right back to our random thoughts. There was never a dull moment with Tami. She knew how to bring fun wherever we went, no matter what we were doing. I am so thankful to have had her in my life, and she will be missed every single day! I love you Tami!!!
