    First my deepest sympathy to Peter and prayers of strength to get you through this loss. Stay strong you will get through it.
    When you talk about Tammy there are many things to say and remember about her. I’ve had the chance to know her and have to say she is one of the most helpful,caring,giving,animal loving, people person one could have the opportunity to know.i haven’t seen her in quite some time as our lives changed direction and without a doubt she was definitely the person who would drop everything to give a helping hand if you called on her. Heaven gained a good person for sure. Rest easy Tammy
