Stu, Sarah and Heather,
My heart is broken for your sweet family! I loved Tami so very much. She made our workdays at Rider High School brighter with her sassy wit and personality. She was incredible with the precious student she worked with! And I know she loved being “Sassy” to her grandchildren. I am praying for your peace and comfort during this valley.

God bless you.

I had the privilege of working with Tami at Barwise. She definitely loved her daughters, grandchildren, and her Stu! I will miss her sense of humor, her cooking videos on facebook, and her happy spirit. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. - Cory
